RRR project to replicate Srull & Wyer (1979) and Mazar, Amir, & Ariely (2008) -------------------------------------- This OSF Page includes all of the relevant information for the Registered Replication Report project that combines replications of two studies: 1. Experiment 1 from: Mazar, N., Amir, O., & Ariely, D. (2008). The dishonesty of honest people: A theory of self-concept maintenance. Journal of marketing research, 45(6), 633-644. 2. Experiment 1 from: Srull, T. K., & Wyer, R. S. (1979). The role of category accessibility in the interpretation of information about persons: Some determinants and implications. Journal of Personality and Social psychology, 37(10), 1660. The approved protocol and collections of tasks were proposed and developed by two teams: Bruno Verschuere of the University of Amsterdam and Ewout Meijer of Maastricht University developed the protocol to replicate Mazar et al. (2008), and Randy McCarthy and John Skowronski of Northern Illinois University developed the tasks required to replicate Strull & Wyer (1979). Nina Mazar, On Amir, and Dan Ariely provided their original materials and invaluable guidance on the development of the protocol to replicate their "10 commandments" study. Robert Wyer provided original materials from his 1979 study and helped verify newer versions of those materials when the originals were unavailable. He too provided extensive guidance on the development of this protocol. Both the McCarthy/Skowronski team and the Verschuere/Meijer team conducted norming pilot studies when developing the protocol materials. The Mazar et al. (2008) study was conducted in a large classroom setting and the critical tasks were embedded in a larger battery of tasks. For this RRR, Verschuere and Meijer, together with the editor (Daniel Simons) gathered a battery of paper/pencil tasks that could be used as part of the study. And, we opted to include materials developed by McCarthy and Skowronski for the Srull & Wyer study as the first set of tasks in this larger battery. The end result will be two separate RRR manuscripts, with all contributing laboratories as authors on each. The editorial process will take place through Perspectives on Psychological Science, the current home for the RRRs. But, the two papers will appear in the new APS journal, *Advances in Methodologies and Practices in Psychological Science* (AMPPS) after it launches in 2018. The materials for the study consist of 8 packets, one for each combination of conditions across the two RRR studies. All 8 packets are available in both letter and A4 paper sizes as zipped archives in the Materials section of this site ([][1]). Labs will be responsible for printing/copying these packets. And, any laboratories using translated versions of the materials will be responsible for completing those translations. If you would like to participate in this project, you will need to submit an application form. You can find the form and a guide for how to submit it at [][2]. If your proposal is approved, you will be added to this project and we will help you to create a linked OSF page for your independent replication study. All completed replication studies will be published together in a separate articles for each RRR at *AMPPS*, regardless of their outcomes. All groups conducting replications will be expected to post the data from their study to their linked project page upon completion of the study. *Important Note: The protocol specifies the minimum requirements for participation, but we encourage those participating in this replication effort to use as large a sample as possible. Larger samples will provide a more precise estimate of the effect size, and smaller confidence intervals for each contributed study will lead to a better overall estimate of the effect size as well. Please specify your proposed sample size in your Contributor Application Form.* [1]: [2]:
