Innovations in Pre-registration in Economics
The adoption of pre-registration has increased rapidly in Economics since the start of the American Economic Association registry in 2013. We discuss recent evidence on the practice of pre-registration in Economics, including opportunities for improvement. We survey frontier topics in pre-registration in the field, including the collection of expert forecasts, pre-specifying the research process, the pre-registration of prospective observational studies, and recent journal efforts to incorporate pre-results review.
