Inclusivity & Diversity Add-on for preregistration forms
This form is meant as a generic add-on that can be added to any
preregistration form to ensure that researchers are mindful about issues
related to inclusivity and diversity. With inclusivity we refer to the
“the fact or policy of not excluding members or participants on the
grounds of gender, race, class, sexuality, disability, etc”
(“Inclusivity,” n.d.). By diversity we refer to the inclusion of people
from different backgrounds, as well as other individual characteristics,
such as sexual orientation (Servaes et al., 2022).

Sections and items
Section: Main form
Describe the working title of your study that has also been described in
the main form.
Provide the link to the main form.
Section: Research team
Research team composition
Explain the composition of the research team in terms of different
characteristics (such as geography, sexual orientation, gender, race,
ethnicity) and how those relate to the research itself. This information
should only be shared if it is safe to do so. If you endanger yourself
or others by sharing this information, please do not share this
Section: Study information
Explain if and how your data allows for disaggregation between different
social groups and make this explicit in all hypotheses.
Section: Data collection
Data collection method
Explain how you will take into account the diversity of your target
group in terms of data collection methods. For example, you could
describe the different data collection methods you use to reach as
diverse a target audience as possible.
Describe the (target) population of your study and why this specific
population was chosen, taking into account inclusivity and diversity.
Explain how you will take the diversity of your target group into
account in relation to recruitment, retention, data analysis, and
Explain how you decided which personal characteristics are measured in
the study and how those are relevant for your study taking inclusivity
and diversity into account.
Section: Analysis Plan
Explain whether and how (if applicable) your data will be disaggregated
for all relevant groups separately (e.g., certain sexual minorities)
also keeping intersectionality in mind (e.g., certain sexual minorities
of color) and how potential undersized groups (from a statistical point
of view) will be handled in the data analysis phase. If this is not
possible, explain why.
Section: Data sharing
Recoded data information
If a dataset associated with the study is publicly shared, and in it
variables from multiple groups have been recoded based on personal
characteristics (e.g., all sexual minorities who participated rather
than each sexual minority group separately), explain if and how (if
applicable) you ensure that other researchers can work with the more
detailed data while respecting the privacy of the participants. If this
is not possible, explain why.
Any other information in regards to inclusivity and diversity that you
want to share in regards to your study.
