New Registered Reports Initiative

Stress and Health is pleased to announce that it is now accepting Registered Reports submissions!

Registered Reports represent a new format of research article in which manuscripts containing a study proposal are reviewed for publication consideration prior to data collection. Thus, Registered Reports are evaluated based solely on the intrinsic merit of the research proposal rather than the statistical significance of the eventual results.

For more information on this exciting initiative, please read our August 2015 editorial. Click here for specific submission guidelines.
