This is an example of how to set up the data transparency narrative and table for manuscripts submitted to Journal of Applied Psychology®.

Edit the table accordingly to describe what has been done and what is planned. Use as many columns as is necessary. Provide any additional information necessary to clarify the unique contribution of each manuscript.
