The easy OSF Registries submission interface guides you through an easy workflow. Just enter your responses to the questions, upload any relevant files, and then your responses, files, and metadata are archived into a timestamped, immutable registration. OSF Registries offers various registration form types, enabling researchers to register according to their discipline, study design, or stage in research.
These form types include preregistration, the act of registering a research plan before a study is conducted. Preregistration increases transparency and improves the quality of research through better planning and by drawing clearer distinctions between confirmed findings and unexpected discoveries.
