Good Afternoon,

You are invited to attend the Division of Psychology, Communication and Human Neuroscience summer seminar. This session will be led by Professor Chris Chambers, from the School of Psychology at Cardiff University.

Chris is the author of the book 'Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology: A Manifesto for Reforming the Culture of Scientific Practice', which won the 2018 British Psychological Society Book Award (Best Academic Monograph) and the 2018 PROSE Award from the Association of American Publishers.

Chris will be leading a talk surrounding Registered Reports. See the information of the talk, time and venue below, and we will look forward to seeing you there;



Registered Reports 2.0



Registered Reports are a form of empirical publication, offered by over 350 journals, in which study proposals are peer reviewed and pre-accepted before research is undertaken. By deciding which articles are published based on the question, theory, and methods, Registered Reports offer a remedy for a range of reporting and publication biases.

In this talk, I will introduce a new platform for supporting Registered Reports called the Peer Community in Registered Reports (PCI RR). PCI RR is a non-profit, non-commercial platform that, like the many other PCIs, coordinates the peer-review of preprints (https://rr.peercommunityin.org/about/about [rr.peercommunityin.org]) but in this specifically for RRs. PCI RR is also joined by a growing fleet of “PCI RR-friendly” journals that agree to endorse the recommendations of PCI RR without further review (https://rr.peercommunityin.org/about/pci_rr_friendly_journals [rr.peercommunityin.org]), giving the authors the power to choose which journal, if any, will publish their manuscript.

By reclaiming control of the peer review process from academic publishers, PCI RR offers a promising avenue for ensuring that Registered Reports are made as open, accessible, and rigorous as possible, while also moving toward a future in which journals themselves become obsolete. Background: https://blogs.sussex.ac.uk/psychology/2021/07/26/registered-reports-free-for-authors-and-readers/ [blogs.sussex.ac.uk]
