Pre-registrations are research statements of intention established before a sample is evaluated and statistical inferences are undertaken. A pre-registration asserts the aim of a study, including its research questions and statistical hypotheses, methods, incl. operationalization of independent variables (IVs) and dependent variables (DVs), sample and analysis specification.
The primary reason for a pre-registration lies in the fact that a statistical inference (Null Hypothesis Significance Testing) is only valid if the statistical hypotheses are fixed before the inference is undertaken. This is grounded in a p-value being a conditional likelihood contingent on the fixed null hypothesis assumed to be true. Furthermore, pre-registrations serve as a ward against questionable research practices, such as outcome-switching, hypothesizing after the results are known (HARKing), or p-hacking... it is meant to counteract the many temptations of researcher degrees of freedom.
Pre-registrations are typically committed confidentially under embargo, with an immutable time-stamp. Once the corresponding study is published, the embargo is lifted.
The embargo on the following registrations have been lifted. They have been de-anonymized and made public.
