Why we should not fear treating preregistration as a gold standard

I wrote the following commentary in response to the post “Why treating preregistration as a gold standard might incentivize poor behavior” by Richard Morey. Dear Richard, With all due respect, I don’t think we need to “have fears” about preregistrations. As you rightly pointed out, preregistration does not prevent checking for robustness as additional exploratory measures (or even as preregistered outcome neutral checks), and as long as preregistration is coupled with the sharing of raw data, we have the best of both worlds, as you point out in the conclusion of your post.
