This study, now in its third decade, follows the lives of 2232 twins born in 1994-95 in England and Wales. The study builds knowledge about how environmental and genetic factors shape behaviors, attitudes and health.

Data-Sharing Concept Paper Guidelines

The Center for Open Science suggests that all study plans be registered in advance (see point 5 here).

The Moffitt-Caspi team and its affiliates have been writing concept papers and data-analysis plans for all paper projects since the early 1990’s, and have been registering them on a public website since 2009. 

Please look here to obtain instructions about how to complete a Concept Paper, and to see if anyone is already working on a topic in which you are interested.  You can also see examples of concept papers before writing one.
