Community Consultants Pilot

Community Consultants

Thank you to everyone who filled our survey about ‘Community Consultants’. Since the feedback was so positive, we’ve decided to launch the programme!

How does it work?

Our hand-picked Community Consultants will be on hand to help you with your research tasks. You just need to choose the consultant you’d like to go with and post what you’d like them to help you with.

Why are we launching this?

We know that sometimes you need help with tasks associated with your research, because time and resources are limited :slightly_smiling_face:

What tasks will they do and how much does it cost?

Here all the services they offer, who offers them, and how much they charge per hour

Are there any discounts available?

Yes! To get the ball rolling, we’ll give you 50% discount on your first request (valid for the first 10 requests made by the community), in return for a public review of your experience :slightly_smiling_face:

(You can claim a discount on 1 request, and individual discounts are capped at a value of £75)

How does payment work?

All payment is done off the forum. So, you can use PayPal or similar financial services. But, you only have to pay once your task has been completed, and you’re happy with the quality of the work.

This is an experiment

We’re just trying this idea out, and things may go wrong. Please bear with us as we figure out how this will work and help us improve it as we go along.

If you have any questions, contact me (@Josh), or reply to this thread!

Specialism: Experimental Economics*

I’m an Italian PhD student and graduate in Economics. My research interests span from Experimental and Behavioral Economics to Game Theory and Game Science.

For online experiments, other than being an expert user of Prolific, I’m also skilled at programming in oTree and have a fair knowledge of Qualtrics.
