A new paper by FiRe members Stefan Palan and Christian Schitter, titled "Prolific.ac — A subject pool for online experimentshas recently been published (open access) in the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Finance. It is concerned with a platform for recruiting participants for online experiments, a topic of growing relevance for the entire social sciences. After briefly discussing key advantages and challenges of online experiments relative to lab experiments, the authors trace the platform’s historical development, present its features, and contrast them with requirements for different types of social and economic experiments.

The paper had before been presented at the FiRe Research Day in December 2017.
