As I've commented before, too much research lurks behind paywalls. This protects it from public scrutiny, sheltering shoddy methodology and questionable data. The tide is now turning, but it hasn't been an easy transition for many. This guide (68 page PDF) helps. It is based on Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines, articulated at the top of the document, "a modular system of eight domains of transparency (citation standards, data transparency, analytic methods (code) transparency, research materials transparency, design and analysis transparency, study preregistration, analysis plan preregistration, and replication). The entire document is structured in a series of what-why-how-worries grids, a unique approach, the first time I've even see something like this.
