You are also Prolific’s grant proposal review board!
To enter, applicants will post their short research proposals in our dedicated channel where you can assess them and vote for the best ones. Our team will then review the 10 proposals with the most votes, and award the prize in accordance with our evaluation criteria.
Please try to be as fair, and impartial as possible. Think about the following things when evaluating a proposal:
- Does it make good use of our community platform’s features like voting, replying, and liking?
- Is it easy for researchers to get involved in?
- Does it minimize online manipulation/gaming?
- Does it adhere to the principles of open science?
- Does it filter for high-quality submissions?
- Does it ensure that grants are awarded fairly, and according to merit?
Proposals can be posted from today (Nov 8th) until Dec 10th at midnight (GMT).
After that deadline, there will be a 10-day voting-only period:
- From Dec 11th - 21st, all proposals will be available for evaluation and voting only.
- We won’t be accepting new entries during this time.
We will take a couple of weeks to assess the applications and announce the winners on the forum, our blog, social media and email as soon as possible.
If you’ve got any questions, let me know!
This competition will be run in accordance with our community guidelines.
