Preregistration: A Plan, Not a Prison

“If you are worried about harming the publishability of your work once you have deviated from the original plan, focus on journals that have made a commitment to rewarding transparency, those that have signed the Transparency and Openness Promotion Guidelines, those that issue Open Practice Badges, or those that accept Registered Reports. These practices signal that the journals have a core commitment toward open and reproducible research and so are best suited to evaluating work based on ideal scientific practices.”
