PPK article in the Nature Human Behaviour
How can social scientists make their work more transparent? Sixty-three editors and open science advocates reached consensus on this topic and created a checklist to help authors document various transparency-related aspects of their work.
“The final version of the Transparency Checklist 1.0 contains 36 items that cover four components of a study: Preregistration; Methods; Results and Discussion; Data, Code, and Materials Availability. For each item, authors select the appropriate answer from pre-specified options. It is important to emphasize that none of the responses on the checklist is a priori good or bad, and the transparency report provides researchers the opportunity to explain their choices at the end of each section.”
The article is open-accessed on the Nature Human Behavior's website.
