Call for Pre-analysis Plans of Observational Studies

Observational Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes papers on all aspects of observational studies. Researchers from all fields that make use of observational studies are encouraged to submit papers.

Observational Studies encourages submission of study protocols (pre-analysis plans) for observational studies. Before examining the outcomes that will form the basis for an observational study’s conclusions, a study protocol should describe the design, exclusion criteria, primary and secondary outcomes, and proposed analyses. Following a publicly available study protocol makes a study more convincing and transparent.

For any questions about the journal or submissions, please contact Dylan Small (Wharton, UPenn) at dsmall [at] wharton [dot] upenn [dot] edu.
