13 questions on how you're using the Community

Hey folks,

It’s been more than a year now since we’ve launched the Researcher Community! :tada:

It’s also been a while since we’ve checked in on how it’s working for you. Our mission here, as you know, is to help you get the most from Prolific and from your research, and my reason for being here is to be guided by you on what getting the most means, and to help you get there to the best of my ability - that’s a conversation I’m always keen to have. :slightly_smiling_face:

To help start the conversation I’ve put together a quick survey on the Researcher Community. I’m keen to understand what brings you here, what’s working (and isn’t working) for you, and what you’d be interested in seeing in the future.

The survey’s open for the next two weeks (closing on Tuesday, 28 June) and, as a reward for completing it, we’ll enter you into a draw to win £100 of Prolific credit.

Go to the survey

The survey isn’t the only way though - not least since we have a whole forum for this! Feel free to leave ideas and comments below, or start a new topic over in Ideas and Feedback. Equally you can always get my attention by sending me a PM.

Thanks to everyone so far who’s filled in the survey! It’s interesting to see your thoughts so far. After the survey closes I’ll do a summary thread to share the general trends.

If you’ve not done it yet, please do take the time to share your thoughts if you can. They’re valuable to me and will help build a space which is hopefully more valuable for you as well. Plus, you could win a bit of extra Prolific credits towards your next research project as well.

Worth emphasising here that the survey’s aimed at researchers (people running studies using Prolific) rather than participants (people taking studies), as the focus is on the community space built for researchers. You’re welcome to be here, though you may find it more useful to join in the /r/ProlificAC subreddit too - it’s a space run by participants and focussed more on contributing to research rather than running the projects themselves.
