Information for users of the laboratory
- All users of the laboratory will be asked to sign their agreement to the Ethical Statement (PDF , 547kb) agreed by EXEC with the University.
- There is a document describing the of the laboratory that potential experimentalists will find invaluable.
- Here there are exec receipts (PDF , 30kb) for use in experiments.
- More information can be found on the Laboratory tab.
- Potential and current experimentalists might be interested in the International Foundation for Research in Experimental Economics (IFREE) which has initiated a small grants program. The program provides up to $10,000 in support for research that uses experimental methods. The grants program is open to anyone affiliated with a research institution. Proposals from researchers located in the US or outside the US are welcome. Details about the program are available on the IFREE web site.
- There are also small grants available from the German Academic Exchange Service(DAAD) in Germany for starting researchers.
- Potential experimenters may be interested to know that the Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS) was renewed for another round of funding by NSF starting last Fall. TESS allows researchers to submit proposals for experiments to be conducted on a nationally-representative, probability-based Internet platform, and successful proposals are fielded at no cost to investigators. More information about how TESS works and how to submit proposals is available at http://www.tessexperiments.org.
