Your New Researcher Community (and Special Events!)

Connect, learn & collaborate on our new forum! ๐Ÿฅณ

We believe that research is better when it's done together! But between lockdowns and campus closures, it's a lot more difficult to collaborate.

That's why, we've launched a space for our community of researchers to come together, learn from each other and collaborate! ๐ŸŽ‰

Join Your Community!

In the forum, you'll be able to:

โšก Connect: Have a chat with your fellow researchers, and get to know the people behind Prolific! You'll also get access to exclusive forum events, giving you the inside scoop directly from the Prolific team.

๐Ÿ“ Learn: The community will be on hand to help you with your platform-related questions, and with all things research. From prescreening tips to ethics applications, we've got your back!

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ผ Collaborate: Research is best done together. So, use the forum to network, and perhaps even find your next co-author!

๐Ÿ“Š The Data Quality Test

Friday Feb 26th, 16:00 - 17:30 GMT

Data Quality is integral to what you do. But how can you be sure you've made the right choice of data-collection platform?

So, we decided to put them to the test! We compared MTurk, Prolific and panel companies on metrics related to attention, comprehension, honesty, and reliability. One platform outperformed them all by an average margin of 40%.

Guess which one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Join our host David Rothschild, PhD as we present the findings of our paper. Pre-print here.
