This is a PREREGISTRATION. The DOI was issued by OSF and refers to the whole GitHub repository, which contains multiple files. The specific file we are submitting is g_exploration.Rmd, which is easily accessible at GitHub at (note: if the URL is broken, it's because the underscore was deleted by the system upon submission. There is an underscore between g and exploration). Note that viewing this file at OSF will result in not being able to see the figures as part of the .Rmd file.

We will likely start data collection in late October or early November 2018 so it would be ideal if we could get through the review process before then.
