Join David Mellor, Director of Policy at the Center for Open Science, and Michiel van Elk, Associate Editor of The International Journal for the Psychology of Religion and Associate Professor at Leiden University, for a webinar to provide an overview of the Registered Reports process. They will review the purpose, structure, and benefits of Registered Reports to eliminate a variety of questionable research practices, including low statistical power, selective reporting of results, and publication bias, while allowing complete flexibility to report serendipitous findings. Following this review, a researcher will share their personal experience with the Registered Reports process. Finally, the panelists will provide details of funding opportunities to conduct research using the Registered Reports model in both the consciousness and psychology of religion disciplines.

Many well-meaning and ambitious researchers get tangled in the process of data anonymization. A thoughtful approach to anonymization is critical to achieving regulatory compliance, protecting individual privacy while maintaining the usefulness of the data for other researchers. What is required of ethical researchers to anonymize data? How can anonymization be applied in a way that is not practical and effective researchers? Planning for data protection across the research lifecycle both mitigates risks to research subjects and facilitates sharing of data for replication and reuse. During this webinar, Dr. Micah Altman will share myths about information privacy that deter researchers from sharing data. He will also share selected best practices for anonymization and the treatment of personally identifiable information in datasets.
