How do I post a study on Prolific Academic?

To recruit participants, follow these steps:

  1. Sign up with your academic or non-academic email address.
  2. Top up your account (our study cost calculator will help).
  3. Set up your new study (we'll guide you through this process). Please note that you cannot create surveys using Prolific Academic. You'll have the option to enter prescreening criteria to filter the participants you need.
  4. You are now ready to post and share your study. Eligible participants will be notified via email that they can participate in your study.
  5. When the study is complete, review participants' submissions & we'll handle the rest.
