The Center for Open Science (COS) is now accepting proposals for new preregistration templates for potential inclusion in the Open Science Framework (OSF). Accepted templates will join the currently supported templates, becoming available for users to select and use to complete a guided workflow when registering their studies on OSF.
Proposed templates will be evaluated by members of the Preregistration Template Working Group using the current submission evaluation criteria. The working group meets every other month (approximately January, March, May, July, September, and November) to discuss proposed submissions.
Proposers are requested to submit the following information for review at this form.
Please direct any questions about submissions to Mark Call (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to any of the members of the working group. Additionally, readers who know of a promising template in their communities can also encourage the template to be considered by sending an email to Mark with a link to read more.
