  • Nature Human Behaviour
Across the social and biomedical sciences, there is a pressing realization that, in order to increase the reliability of scientific results, we need to change how research is carried out, evaluated, reported, and incentivized. Ten leading advocates for the reform of scientific practices set out ‘A manifesto for reproducible science’ in this first issue of Nature Human Behaviour (article no. 0021). They put forward a set of proposals for the optimization of the scientific process that require… Expand

The past, present and future of Registered Reports.
It is concluded that Registered Reports are promoting reproducibility, transparency and self-correction across disciplines and may help reshape how society evaluates research and researchers. Expand
Registered Reports, Replication, and the Canadian Journal of School Psychology: Improving the Evidence in Evidence-Based School Psychology
The Canadian Journal of School Psychology (CJSP) is offering scholars the opportunity to register research reports and make research protocols publicly available to promote replication, transparency,Expand
Are preregistration and registered reports vulnerable to hacking?
New evidence indicates that preregistration is being circumvented, with authors often deviating from registered plans and not fully disclosing it, and one “crowdsourcing” study showed notable variability in results drawn from the same research question and data set. Expand
A multi-disciplinary perspective on emergent and future innovations in peer review.
There is considerable scope for new peer review initiatives to be developed, each with their own potential issues and advantages, and a novel hybrid platform model is proposed that could resolve many of the socio-technical issues associated with peer review, and potentially disrupt the entire scholarly communication system.

A decentralized framework for cultivating research lifecycle transparency
A novel decentralized framework is proposed to serve as a common medium for interaction among open-science tools, and produces irrefutable and immutable proofs of progress that can be verified automatically. Expand
Registered Reports: Genre Evolution and the Research Article
The research article is a staple genre in the economy of scientific research, and although research articles have received considerable treatment in genre scholarship, little attention has been givenExpand

The Rise of Preprints and Their Value in Social Sciences and Humanities
In this short essay, I describe the experience I have gained from my own ‘experiments,’ so to speak, on the actual value of non-peer-reviewed preprints in social sciences and humanities and whetherExpand
Correspondence of Resting State and Task Brain Networks: Reproducibility and New Insights
The brain networks that are most strongly activated during task performance are shown for each task studied in the present work, providing new insights into task network function. Expand
Replication of Resting State-Task Network Correspondence and Novel Findings on Brain Network Activation During Task fMRI in the Human Connectome Project Study
Findings supporting the replication of a highly cited neuroimaging study that showed correspondence between resting state and task brain networks, and novel findings on activation of brain networks during task performance that arose with this exercise are presented as a demonstration of use of the HCP for replication studies.
