Results-free review: Help shape the future of peer review

Openness and transparency are the pillars of scientific progress. However, there is a bias towards publishing positive results, distorting the evidence base and undermining the reproducibility of research. Results-free review offers a solution to this problem, focusing editorial decisions on the rationale and methods alone. If you submit your research to BMC Psychology, you can simply opt-in to results-free review at the click of a button, adding credibility to your published results via inclusion in our special article collection.
