My experience with JARS has been very positive. I have shared it with all my associate editors (AEs), and we held a thorough discussion about how to best use JARS. I have already seen multiple cases where AEs directed authors to JARS in their decision letters. Thus, we have found it helpful in informing authors on better and more transparent reporting of methods, analyses, and results. In addition, I assigned JARS to all our incoming PhD students, in an introduction to research methods course I teach in my department. Thus, JARS has also been quite useful to me in teaching methodology to incoming PhD students.
