Online Study Setup & Management

After receipt of a completed Intake Form, Behavioral Lab Research Fellows will complete initial study setup within Sona and/or mTurk. Our team will work with you to obtain participant compensation prior to the first experiment session. Investigators are responsible for providing a chart-string to facilitate participate payment prior to experiment set up.

Individual investigators will not need to access Sona or the Kellogg mTurk  Panel personally.  

Investigators should indicate inclusion/exclusion criteria within the study intake form. Only those participants eligible for the study will be contacted for recruitment purposes. Please note that it is possible to run an online study using any of the lab's subject pools: the Kellogg mTurk panel, the student sona pool, or the community member sona pool. You may run online studies using any one of these pools individually, or use them simultaneously, depending on the needs of your particular study. Payment methods may vary.

Faculty and PhD students using the lab are required to provide lab staff with access to their experiment and supplementary study materials prior to study launch. Our team will review and pilot test all aspects of your study before recruiting participants. This is a Quality Assurance measure and is required even for those investigators using their own RAs.

Our research fellows will  recruit the desired number of participants, complete the credit granting process, and provide participant compensation.


Investigators may not have access to identifiable information, or contact participants directly.

Important Note: IRB approval is required prior to initial study setup. For additional information on how to obtain IRB approval, please see our IRB guidance page.


If using Kellogg’s subject pools, reference STU00009026.
