Webinar: Registered Reports and Funding in Consciousness and Religion Research

Webinar: Registered Reports and Funding in Consciousness and Religion Research

Date/Time: Thursday, June 16, 2022 | 9:00 am EDT

Join David Mellor, Director of Policy at the Center for Open Science (COS), 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, including:

● Funding Consciousness Research with Registered Reports
With generous funding from the Templeton World Charity Foundation and in
collaboration with the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC),
COS is leading an initiative awarding a total of $1.125M to consciousness researchers
who use the Registered Reports process to publish their papers in participating journals.

● The Open Science of Religion Project
The Open Science of Religion project will advance the use of open science practices
and Registered Reports in the psychology of religion/spirituality field. The first 18
projects that receive in-principle acceptance through this process will be awarded
$20,000 to support their research and its dissemination.
