Registration

Link to registered designs

EGAP has endorsed the idea of research registration in its statement of principles. The basic idea is that registration of research designs limits the scope for “fishing” and provides a tool for assessing the scope and effects of publication bias. See here and here for discussions.

The EGAP registry focuses on designs for experiments in governance and politics. To register a design please:

  1. complete the  pilot registration tool; this provides an automatic timestamp for your submission.
  2. send a more detailed preanalysis plan to us at paps@e-gap.org. Most authors find that their analysis plan needs more detail than can be provided on the online form and post these in the form on a preanalysis plan. There is currently no required format for a preanalysis plan but the plans should normally at least cover all the fields in the online form and provide more detail on analysis procedures.
