Pre-Analysis Plans for Observational Research

In her presentation at RT2 DC in 2019, Fiona Burlig (University of Chicago) provides advice on how one can credibly pre-register an observational research project. Also see Burlig’s 2018 paper that describes three scenarios for pre-registration of observational work, including i) cases where researchers collect their own data; ii) prospective studies; and iii) research using restricted-access data.
