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>The appraisal-tendency framework proposed that specific emotions predispose individuals to appraise future events corresponding to the core appraisal themes of the emotions. In a Registered Report with a US American online Amazon Mechanical Turk CloudResearch sample (N = 780), we conducted an independent close replication of Experiments 1, 2, and 3 in Lerner and Keltner (2001). We found support for the appraisal-tendency framework for risk optimism in general, risk optimism for positive events, and risk optimism for ambiguous events, but not for risk preference and risk optimism for negative events. Extending the replication, we added hope as one dispositional emotion and failed to find support for the assumptions of the appraisal-tendency framework.

Karolina Scigala suggested: I apologize, but I am currently in the middle of applying for jobs and not able to review this manuscript. Perhaps Lau Lilleholt from Copenhagen University would be a good choice (he is an expert in risk judgments) 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
