Submit a report


Please note: To accommodate reviewer and recommender holiday schedules, we will be closed to submissions from 1st July — 1st September. During this time, reviewers will be able to submit reviews and recommenders will issue decisions, but no new or revised submissions will be made by authors. The one exception to this rule is that authors using the scheduled track who submit their initial Stage 1 snapshot prior to 1st July can choose a date within the shutdown period to submit their full Stage 1 manuscript.

We are recruiting recommenders (editors) from all research fields!

<p>It is well established that the left hemisphere is dominant in oral language in the majority of neurotypical individuals, while a more symmetrical pattern of activation in shown in cases of language disorders, such as dyslexia. Cerebral lateralization of written language, however, despite the critical role of writing in education and in everyday communication and the fact that children with dyslexia present with writing difficulties, has been investigated by only a few studies, non of which has sampled children, neurotypical or not. Here we aim to investigate the cerebral lateralization of written language in children at risk for dyslexia compared to neurotypical children using functional Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. We hypothesize that the linguistic component of writing will be less lateralized in children at risk for dyslexia compared to controls. Furthermore, we will explore the correlation between writing competence and the cerebral lateralization of the linguistic component of written language. Findings have potential implications for the use of cerebral lateralization of written language as an early biomarker of dyslexia.</p>

No need for them to be recommenders of PCI Registered Reports. Please do not suggest reviewers for whom there might be a conflict of interest. Reviewers are not allowed to review preprints written by close colleagues (with whom they have published in the last four years, with whom they have received joint funding in the last four years, or with whom they are currently writing a manuscript, or submitting a grant proposal), or by family members, friends, or anyone for whom bias might affect the nature of the review - see the code of conduct
