Will the data and study materials be made publicly accessible?

Yes, all data, study materials, and analysis code will be made publicly available on the Open Science Framework website (osf.io). 

How will the study materials be translated? 

Labs conducting the study in a language other than English or Swedish may be asked to translate the materials to their own language. The translation procedure will be standardized and follow best practices in translating for cross-cultural research.

Will CLIMR pay study participants?

No, CLIMR does not have resources to pay study participants. Participating labs are free to choose the means of compensation best suited for their local sample (e.g., monetary reimbursement, course credits, voluntary participation).

What is required for being a co-author on the article?

Co-authors need to fulfill at least two of the contributor roles defined in the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (CRediT; https://casrai.org/credit/). For instance, performing the data collection (Investigation role) and giving feedback on the article draft (Writing – review & editing role) would be enough to earn co-authorship.

Is it possible to collect data online?

For the sake of experimental control we strongly encourage data collections in the lab. Online data collection should only be used as a last resort. However, in such situations a local sample should nonetheless be used (e.g., a university subject pool). That is, it is not permissible to use crowdsourcing platforms such as MTurk or Prolific Academic.
