PLOS Backs Early Peer Review With New Article Type

PLOS (Public Library of Science) is planning a new preregistration article type for PLOS ONE called Registered Reports. It will “enable researchers to document and receive expert peer review feedback on their study design and proposed methods, before beginning their investigation. PLOS ONE will peer review and publish the authors’ initial study proposal as well as the complete research article resulting in two stages of independent publications.”

PLOS provides a list of the following reasons it is establishing Registered Reports:

  1. Registered Reports combat publication bias.
  2. The review of the research protocol improves the robustness of a study and facilitates reproducibility.
  3. Authors receive greater clarity, earlier in the research process, which can speed up publication of the full paper.
