Registered Reports in Economic Journals

Registered Reports (RR) are a new submission format for experimental sciences, where journals review a paper before data collection. The adoption of RR submissions by journals has been shown to significantly increase the quality of publications, and, thus, the trustworthiness of evidence published. The benefits of the adoption of RR include higher replicability, lower risks of p-hacking and HARKing, more innovative and resource-intensive studies, and more limited risks of publication bias as Chambers and Tzavella show. Numerous resources are made available to help researchers and editors work with RR by PCI RR (link for authors, link for editors). There is also a Practical Guide to Registered Reports for Economists.

We list below the economics journals that accept Registered Reports as a valid submission format.
