    And the reviewers did not notice this!

    So, what are these sought after badges?

    Sounds to me like gold stars kids get in school. We never get past this liking for points it seems. Kind of like "Likes" on this forum!

    I wonder if researchers who hide or omit findings, think of the ramifications of their work. How it may skew public health policy for instance.

    I think the reviewers are unlikely to check against the registered plan unless specifically asked. Reviewers are unpaid and it is part of the overall academic workload so will often be a light weight process unless something feels wrong (but that can just be a rejection).

    Uh, of course it is. But if it's just a suggestion without consequences then of course it's not going to happen.

    Like do no harm, if nothing enforces it, then it's just a slogan.

    Force it to happen, with consequences, and it will be done. People will be pissed because now they'll have to actually try to respect the scientific method but the consequences so far have been disastrous, with most of them, like what is happening to us, mostly out of sight.
