Data from the Itanes referendum surveys have been presented at the Workshop on the 2016 Constitutional Referendum held at the Università degli Studi La Sapienza, Roma on February 9th, 2017.

Scholars who have preregistered a research design by 11.59 p.m. of February 8th, 2017 and would like to enter the competition can request the data from ITANES President Paolo Bellucci <>.

Entrants must designate the IPSR Editors, Fabio Franchino <> and Amie Kreppel  <>, as having access to view the contents of all the preregistred materials. Access is only for the purposes of administering the competition (section 4 points 1 and 2 of the competition rules presented here).

You can choose one of the following three procedures:

1) Public project procedure: set the preregistered project as public and share the link…/ with the IPSR editors.

2) View-only-link procedure: access your preregistered research form by logging in the OSF website, select -> ‘my projects’ in the upper black bar -> ‘all my registrations’ in the left columns -> the title of your preregistered project. Once accessed your preregistered project (please make sure that the line ‘Registration Form: Prereg Challenge’ appears under the field ‘Contributors’), create a view-only link. To do this, select ‘Contributors’ in the upper grey bar and create the link. Once created the view only link, copy and paste the view only link into the navigation bar and select the field ‘Registration Form: Prereg Challenge’, which will give you a URL with the “?view_only=…” tag at the end of it (in the navigation bar). Share this URL with the IPSR editors.

3) Contributor procedure: add at least one IPSR editor as contributor to the project. Access your project following the instructions above, select ‘Contributors’, select ‘add’, type Franchino and/or Kreppel in the search, select the contributor and add. The editor(s) will received a notification email from the OSF.
