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 can 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!

Fathers learning on the job: Role of Paternity Leave Duration on Paternal Infant-Directed Speech and Preference for Male Infant-Directed Speech in infantsuse asterix (*) to get italics

<p>The acoustic properties of infant-directed speech (IDS) and the functions that IDS may serve in language development have been highly debated in research. However, previous research has mostly explored IDS in mothers and the preference for maternal IDS, with no studies assessing the role of exposure or parenthood experience on acoustic properties of IDS and infants’ preference for IDS. The current study will thus explore infant-directed speech in Norwegian fathers and the role of experience (duration of parental leave) on paternal language and infants’ preference for male IDS. By using eye tracking technology, this study will be one of few studies to explore whether first-born infants prefer male infant-directed speech in early language development and if preference is modulated by the amount of exposure to male IDS. The results of the current study will provide insight into the mechanisms involved in infant-directed speech and infants’ preference for IDS in infancy.&nbsp;</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
