Participant platforms and response data

  1. 1. Pondering Participant Platforms and getting response data Questions for researchers Dr Sarah Quinton 20/20 April 2106
  2. 2. Mechanical Turk, digital sweatshop labour or digital research assistance? • Do those completing the task have free choice in their participation? • Have those completing the task been informed about the context of the research and the use of the data? • Will there be fair payment to those completing the tasks, when will they be paid etc? • Can the level of anonymity required be guaranteed? • Sampling frames may be very distorted and inaccurate or even unknown to the researchers. • How can researchers using Mturk as a data collection tool mitigate the ethical issues?
  3. 3. Third party participant platforms for research • In order of Oxford Brookes’s research ethics preference • 1) A research institute or university platform designed to facilitate research (http://www.callforparticipants.com) • 2) A spin off from number one developed as a small business (https://www.prolific.com/) • 3) Commercial platforms aimed at academic research which may state authorisation by university ethics committees
