CALL FOR PAPERS
Reproducibility and Replicability in Neuroscience and Mental Health
PLOS ONE is launching a new collection, Reproducibility and Replicability in Neuroscience and Mental Health Research. This call for papers emphasizes PLOS ONE’s focus on reproducibility, open data, and rigorous experimentation and analysis. Submission deadline, January 20, 2023.
First emerging in the early 2010s, the replication crisis has captured the attention of researchers across disciplines, with significant focus on the areas of psychology and mental health. Transparency in research and reporting and reproducible methodological rigor are invaluable tools in addressing these concerns. PLOS ONE is committed to pushing the boundaries of Open Science by providing resources and opportunities for improved rigor and reproducibility, including three article types specific to protocols, allowing for peer review of the methods and study design before the study is conducted.
This call for papers emphasizes PLOS ONE’s focus on reproducibility, open data, and rigorous experimentation and analysis. The call welcomes protocol submissions in any of the above categories as well as submissions reporting completed research adhering to transparent and reproducible reporting practices in the areas of clinical psychology, psychiatry, mental health, and neuroscience. In addition to research articles, this call welcomes submissions in any of the following article types:
- Study Protocol
- Lab Protocol
- Registered Report Protocol
Protocols and research articles adhering to transparent and reproducible reporting practices in the areas of:
PLOS ONE publishes primary research across all areas of science, including interdisciplinary research. Research articles are selected for scientific rigor rather than perceived impact.
