Pre-registered Research Grants
The option to pre-register research is now available to social psychologists and there are even journals that publish only pre-registered research, for example, the EASP journal Comprehensive Results in Social Psychology (CRSP) that only publishes pre-registered research. The EASP would like to support its postgraduate and full members in engaging in this type of process. To make this possible, the EASP introduces a pre-registration research grant that will support pre-registration of research that has received an IPA (in principle acceptance) from a peer reviewed journal such as (but not exclusively) CRSP.
Grants are restricted to postgraduate and full members of the Association. Applicants do not need to be the principal investigator of the pre-registered paper to apply for these funds, but they need to be substantially involved in the proposed research (i.e., qualify for co-authorship according to APA guidelines). Any member may be awarded a maximum of one pre-registered grant within a period of five years.
Authors who have a research proposal accepted by a peer-reviewed journal such as CRSP or other journals that support pre-registered research in the area of social psychology can apply for this grant to help conduct the accepted research. Pre-registration, as such, is not sufficient to apply for this grant.
Amount and Funded Expenses
The maximum grant awarded to any one individual will typically not exceed €1000. Up to ten grants a year will be awarded. Funds can be used for any research related costs, typically to compensate participants, or to get access to survey data, to pay for research assistants, or lab equipment. Travel and accommodation costs related to the conduct of the research are not fundable.
