Digital Method of the Month: Preregistration

Digital Method of the Month Mashup


Have you seen a presentation on digital research methods and wondered if they are applicable to your work? Are you interested in learning new digital skills but unsure where to start?

This is the right place for you!

The digital method of the month meeting is a safe space to freely discuss the practicalities of learning and implementing a new digital skill in your research.

Each month we select a method, and we have an honest and practical discussion on what it takes to learn and master it. How much time will it take to get the basics? What are the software options available? What are the most common pitfalls? Where can you find more info on the subject? Etc...

The method of this month is Pre-registration.

When you preregister your research, you're simply specifying your research plan in advance of your study and submitting it to a registry. Pre-registration is a way to enhance trustworthiness of data-driven scientific research. It is suitable for not only quantitative studies but also qualitative ones (although it seems somewhat counterintuitive for the latter). Many researchers from the world’s top institutions are keen on promoting it to improve the quality and credibility of their research. It is a significant part of open science and there are lots of open resources available.

Join us to discuss why you might want to preregister your next study and how to do it.

This is a beginner level event, and no previous knowledge of the method is required.

To attend this event, you will have to join the associated Microsoft Teams group. The link to join the group will be sent to the attendees prior to the course start date, so please make sure to do so in advance.
