I am planning to conduct a political science experiment (recruiting participants online to complete a short survey-based experiment). Either for this specific application or speaking in general terms, what information do I need to put into my pre-analysis plan? I've seen a wide variety of these documents online and there doesn't seem to be a set template that I can find.

Is this one specifically about political science? I see that - maybe it should say politcial science in the title for clarity?

I think the two questions are similar but distinct.
