More and more studies are online these days, which means that researchers can find a whole new array of participants for their studies, and anyone who’s interested can become a real part of cutting-edge research.
But how can researchers find interested research subjects — and how can people who want to participate find the studies that are interesting to them? We think we might be able to help. If you’re conducting an online psychology study, or really any study that can be conducted remotely, just put all the vital details in a comment below.
Your study will appear in the “recent comments” sidebar list on the front page of CogDaily.
If you want to be a research participant, just look up this post every couple of weeks for updates. There’s now a permanent link to this post in the sidebar, so you will always know where to look for exciting new studies.
I’ve got a few guidelines for researchers and participants below:
- Please post only once per study!
- Don’t post until your study is ready to go, and include an end date for the study. You can also email me when your study is over and I’ll add a note to your comment.
- A trick for getting your study noticed: Put a very short (5 words or less) description of the study in the “Name” field of the comment form. Then your study description will appear in the recent comments list, and clicking on the description will take users directly to the URL you provide.
- Please only use the comments on this post to announce studies. If there is a problem with one of the studies, contact the study administrator or email us.
- Cognitive Daily can’t review all the studies included here, so we aren’t responsible for their content. But please do let us know if there is an ethical or other issue with a study listed here.
- Researchers, let us know when your results are published. Maybe we’ll write a Research post about it!
- Have fun!
