This format contributes to making scientific findings more reliable and replicable. The review process for Registered Reports is divided into two stages. In Stage 1, reviewers assess study proposals before data is collected. In Stage 2, reviewers consider the full study, including results and interpretation.
This format is especially useful for early career researchers, who may start writing their paper and benefit from Stage-1 acceptance before data collection.
