**This project is hosted on the [Many Lab][1].** **1. What is the project?** The CREP is a crowdsourced replication project for undergraduate researchers. Six studies are available that are both highly cited and feasible for undergraduates to complete. Contributors who meet open science reporting guidelines receive small research awards (300-400 dollars) and when there are enough samples, contributors are encouraged to collaborate on a research paper. For the CREP completion steps, go to this subcomponent [CREP completion][2]: **2. What is required from collaborators?** Student researchers are expected to complete a replication study. Ns per study to be replicated. The exact completion steps are elaborated upon on the [CREP homepage][3]: **3. What will collaborators get out of this?** Student researchers can follow steps to be more thorougly prepared for research at more advanced stage in their career. In addition, they are encouraged to be lead author on the replication research reports. Finally, each student group receives a financial reward between 300 - 400 dollars upon approval of reported results by the CREP board. The first manuscript was first-authored by undergraduate researchers and is under review at a major journal. **4. How do I join this project?** Advisors or student researchers contact the CREP project coordinator Jon Grahe ( to claim a study. After claiming their study, they follow completion steps outlined on the CREP Research Award Completion Steps page [CREP Completion][2].
