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!

<p>Voice preferences are an integral part of interpersonal interactions and shape how people 1 connect with each other. While a large number of studies has investigated the mechanisms behind 2 (spoken) voice attractiveness, very little research was dedicated to other types of vocalizations. In 3 this Registered Report, we propose to investigate voice preferences with an integrative approach. 4 To this end, we will use a newly recorded and validated stimulus set of contrasting vocalizations 5 by 22 highly trained female singers speaking and singing the same material in contrasting styles 6 (sung as a lullaby, as a pop song or as an opera aria; and spoken aloud as if directed to an adult 7 audience and as if directed to an infant). We will ask participants to rate these vocalizations in 8 terms of how much they liked them; and we will compare the amount of shared taste (i.e., how 9 much participants agree in their preferences) across styles. This approach will allow us to 10 characterize voice preferences in a broader framework, taking into account the variability in both 11 the uses and functions of vocalizations and in participants’ aesthetic appreciation of them, in order 12 to better understand a question central to human experience.&nbsp;</p>
