The purpose of this project is to promote open science (e.g., transparency, openness, and reproducibility) within the psychology of religion/spirituality (PoR/S) field. The PoR/S field has been criticized for numerous reasons, including questionable research practices (e.g., p-hacking), perceived R/S biases, isolation from mainstream scholarship, unrepresentative samples, underpowered studies, nonreplicated findings, simplistic designs, and problematic analyses. Open science practices (OSPs; e.g., sharing data/materials, preregistering hypotheses and analytic plans) and registered reports (RRs) address these issues. By encouraging OSPs and increasing exposure to RRs across key journals, we can lead by example and elevate field norms.
