Content
Goals
-To make KLI members familiar with tools to preregister, share and replicate their research
-To enable them to come up with their own sharing and registration plan
-To let them take first steps toward realizing such plans.

Rationale
Pre-registration of studies before they are conducted and data sharing after they have been completed has recently become more feasible for researchers, and an increasing number of journals encourages researchers to do so. The practices of pre-registration and data sharing are however relatively new to psychological science, and specific guidelines are still in a formative stage. In this workshop, we outline several strategies that can be used and discuss the advantages of each to science as a whole and to the individual scientist, as well as some of their drawbacks and limitations. In addition, we present a standard template that can facilitate pre-registration and data sharing.

Format
In the morning, teaching staff will address the pros and cons of preregistering and sharing projects and will discuss concrete guidelines to facilitate and standardize the process and contents of replications, pre-registrations and data sharing, see van 't Veer & Giner-Sorolla, 2016 (JESP).
After this plenary session, participants will divide up in groups and they will think of which studies they would like to replicate, or which new idea they would like to preregister. The ideas should be implemented easily with for example Qualtrics survey software.
After a plenary review by the group of all options, one idea will be chosen and that study will actually be preregistered and all participants who wish to join will then run the study at their individual universities: a KLI multi labs project! The outcome of the project will be presented at the bi-annual KLI conference. Participants of this course are encouraged to think about eligible studies (and to search the literature) before the course, in order to increase the number of projects we can choose from.
