Stanford researchers are looking for participants willing to take part in organizational and marketing studies. You may participate either in-person in our lab or online on your home computer. Studies typically include cash or gift card payments to participants averaging $20 an hour. None of our studies involve physical exertion or medical procedures.
Before you sign up for a study, make sure you read the description so you know how you will be compensated. Researchers generally pay participants immediately after participation for in-person studies, and within 5-10 days after the close of the study for online participation.
Qualifications to participate:
- You must be 18 years of age or older
- You may have only one Sona account
- You may not participate in the same study more than once
- You must complete a prescreen form
- You may NOT participate if you are a graduate student in Psychology,
Organizational Behavior, or Marketing
- Note: If you are NOT a U.S. citizen, you may still participate in most studies run
through the Behavioral Lab

We also run studies through Mechanical Turk (Mturk) run by Amazon. Amazon hires individuals to complete tasks, and the tasks that the Behavioral Lab posts to the site consist of surveys. Though there is no way to specifically search for Stanford studies on Mturk, many universities use this site to run studies and many studies are available for compensated participation. For more information on how to participate click HERE.
Another participant pool through which we run studies is Survey Sampling International (SSI). We are one group for which SSI hires individuals to take surveys. Though there is no way to specifically search for Stanford studies on the SSI site, many surveys are available to be taken for compensation. For more information on how to participate click HERE.
