Want $1000? Take the Center for Open Science’s Preregistration Challenge

April 11, 2017

The Center for Open Science wants to improve your research and give you $1000!

Transparency and independent replication are core values of science. However, scientists must publish, which is more likely with positive and tidy results, even at the expense of transparent, reproducible research. What is good for science and what is good for scientists are not always the same. Preregistration adds credibility to results by documenting in advance what will be tested. If you have a project that is entering the data collection phase, COS is giving away $1,000 to 1,000 researchers who preregister before they publish!

You’ll have to create an account to register, but that account also gives you access to great tools to keep track of your research.
