PsychLab online

Our online lab offers cost-free data collection for high-quality preregistrations. We provide quota samples that are purchased from a panel provider for your web-based surveys. Moreover, web-based studies that have requirements exceeding the service portfolio of the panel provider can be conducted via crowdsourcing through our online lab.

To apply, submit your preregistration protocol to the Lab Track at  PreReg in Psychology. Your application will be evaluated in a review process that is similar to that of a journal.

After acceptance, your preregistration will be published in  PsychArchives  and we will initiate the data collection. Therefore, it is necessary that you implement your study with software that is suitable for conducting web-based experiments (e.g., Unipark, SoSci Survey, Qualtrics, …). 

After data collection, data collected via PsychLab  must be archived and published in  PsychArchives  for secondary use.

For more information about the Lab Track, please visit  PreReg in Psychology   or contact us directly if any questions remain!
