Dear Prolific Community,
I’d like to ask a question regarding participant payment and the recruitment of a custom sample.
In our study, we need to recruit participants who are considered naive to a certain topic/subject/field and others who are experts on it. We plan to recruit the naive sample using the prescreening options that Prolific offers. So far so good.
Now, regarding the expert participants, we will need to create a first study (a short one, max. 10 min to complete) to filter the experts on the subject that we need. According to this article Recruiting a Custom Sample – Prolific, we can create a Custom Allowlist, which will allow us to invite the participants of interest to proceed to the actual study.
What I wanted to ask is what would be a fair payment for the participants who would take part in the first, short study? There would be no time limit but the questions (5 or 6 in total) pertain to the collection of data on their field of expertise.
Thank you in advance, I’m looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
