To everyone who signed up for RRR announcements:

Later today, APS will be announcing a new RRR project. You are receiving the message earlier because you signed up for announcements on the RRR mailing list (Google Group).

This new RRR project includes two separate RRRs combined into a single data-collection protocol. The protocol was originally designed to replicate a study of the effects of experiencing a moral prime on subsequent cheating behavior (Mazar et al, 2008). Their original study tasks were embedded within a larger battery of tasks, and there is no record of what those tasks were. So, with the consultation of the original authors, we decided to make he first task in that battery another RRR, this one of the original Srull & Wyer (1979) hostility priming study. The procedures for each replication were developed separately and then combined into a single battery.

This RRR has a few unusual requirements. First, it must be conducted in a large classroom setting (ideally more than 100 people in each session, but a bare minimum of 50). Second, if the materials will be translated, it must still be possible to do the sentence descrambling task in the testing language (i.e., select 3 words that make a sentence from a set of 4 words).

The two RRR projects will be published as separate papers in the soon-to-launch APS journal, Advances in Methodologies and Practices in Psychological Science (AMPPS). All contributing researchers will be authors on both papers.

The deadline to apply to contribute to this RRR project is November 30, 2016, with all data collection due by November 30, 2017. Note, though, that we will stop accepting applications to join the project if we reach 30 labs before the deadline. That is, we will be capping the number of contributing labs at 30 even if that happens before we reach the deadline. (If you miss out, there will be other opportunities soon.)

You can learn more about the project and download the application form at https://osf.io/vxz7q/. If you have any questions, you can email me at replicati...@gmail.com.
