Lecture: "Increasing transparency through preregistration and/or multiverse analyses"

by Prof. Dr. Andrea Hildebrandt (Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg)


When: March 14th, 2024, 16:00-17:00
Where: Leopoldstraße 13, room 2201 and on Zoom

Abstract: Pre-registering an analysis plan means committing to analytical steps without knowing the results of the research. Multiverse analysis means committing to multiple, defensible analytical steps and investigating the robustness of the results across analytical choices. Assuming that all listeners are familiar with 'The preregistration revolution' (Nosek et al., 2018, PNAS), after a brief introduction to the rationale for multiverse analysis, I will argue in this talk that the two proposed tools for the credibility revolution (pre-registration and multiverse analysis) should be used together.

Instructor: Andrea Hildebrandt, Professor for Psychological Methods and Statistics at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Department of Psychology
