Announcing New Published Studies that Took the Prereg Challenge


July 27, 2017


Preregistration Challenge

Since the Preregistration Challenge started 18 months ago, many researchers have specified their research plans, had them checked by our team at COS, conducted their work, and had it published. We are happy to congratulate them on doing their part to improve the process of scientific discovery. The following nine studies are recent recipients of a Preregistration Challenge Prize, and join our previous winners.
