We've made some big changes: A New Community Mission

A New Community Mission

Our community has a new mission! We want this forum to be a place where we all help each other to produce world-changing insights, at every stage of the research process.

Prolific’s job? To enable you all to do this. So, we’ve restructured the forum with that in mind.

A New Community Structure

Prolific Hub

You’ll find a Prolific-specific area called the 'Prolific Hub’, where all the normal forum activity like asking questions, and getting help, will still be going on. However, you’ll also find new spaces called ‘The Co-Lab’ and ‘Group Chats’.

The Co-Lab

In 'The Co-Lab’, you’ll find spaces that correspond to the different activities you undertake as a researcher:

Group Chats

In ‘Group Chats’, you’ll find exclusive spaces where you can connect with researchers from your region, institution and field. To access those spaces, join the relevant group here.

You’re in Charge!

We want you to own this and shape how each space evolves! So, we’re asking two questions:

  • What would you love to see happening in each space?

  • What would you do to encourage others to use each space, if you were in charge?

Everyone who replies to our questions, in the Co-Lab section, will be put in a raffle to win £250 in Prolific credit!



@Community_Leaders Check it out :slight_smile:


I think the new things added is awsome great job prolific.

Hi Team,

It’s great to see the forum evolving! I think one way to make it more efficient would be to create subsections or threads for commonly addressed themes, such as “participant payments” or “zoom studies”, with a first message (probably from you, Josh!) that links out to the help pages. That way, folks using the forum have easy access to the available information - both help pages and previously asked questions related to their topic. Keep up the good work!

I love this idea! I’m going away on vacation for the next 2 weeks, but when I get back, I’d love to touch base with you about how we can implement this within the Prolific Hub
