Rules
Laboratory Experiments

In order to participate in experiments, you must register online by clicking on the box at the bottom of the page, signifying your agreement with the rules and privacy policy.

By registering for laboratory experiments, you indicate your intention to take part in experiments conducted in the laboratory.

Rules for laboratory experiments
  • For each experiment, a certain number of registered participants will receive an email invitation. Only those receiving such an email invitation may sign up for the experiment.
  • If you receive an email inviting you to participate in an experiment, you must sign up using the link from this email in order to take part. By doing so, you indicate your commitment to participate.
  • For each experiment, an excess number of participants may be invited. The first invited persons arriving at the experiment's location will participate. Participants who are invited and may not participate in the experiment due to capacity constraints or other failures are compensated with the show up payment.
  • Every participant who is invited to, signs up for, and shows up on time for an experimental session will receive a minimum payment of at least $5.
  • Usually, participation will be compensated in cash. The amount each participant receives generally depends on the participant's and other participants' decisions during the experiment.
  • During an experiment, each participant will have to act upon the rules stated by the experimenter in the instructions.
  • Registered participants should bring photo ID to the experimental session for which they have signed up. Participants with no photo ID may not receive the show up payment, and may not be able to participate in the session.
  • Registered participants must arrive at the laboratory a minimum of 5 minutes before the session is scheduled to start. Late arrival forfeits registered participants' right to a show-up fee.
  • Registered participants must acknowledge the possibility that sessions may be cancelled because of a lack of participants. In this event, registered participants arriving on time will still receive the show-up fee.

Therefore, by registering for laboratory experiments, you agree with the following statements:
  • I acknowledge that my failure to show up for a session that I have enrolled in may lead to the experiment being cancelled.
  • I am aware that records of my "no-shows" are kept (see your personal data on the web site once you have registered online), and that accumulating 3 "no shows" will remove me from consideration for future experiments.


Internet Experiments:

  • The rules for Internet experiments will be announced at the registration page for the specific experiment.

Participants' Rights:
  • Participants may decline to provide any kind of personal information that they choose.
  • Participants may decide at any time that they no longer wish to participate in an experimental session. Each experimenter must communicate their policy on how this affects participants' compensation.
  • Participants having concerns about their treatment or questions about their rights as a participant can contact the chairperson of Haverford's Institutional Review Board (IRB), at hc-irb@haverford.edu. The IRB is a committee that monitors research by members of the Haverford community that involves human subjects, in order to protect their rights.

Participant Database
  • Data stored in the so-called "Recruitment System" is collected exclusively for the organization of experiments. This information will not be disclosed to third parties. We use the data for the following purposes:
    • To inform participants about laboratory and internet experiments, and to invite a scientifically motivated selection of participants to carry out certain experiments.
    • To keep a record of past experiments in which participants' have taken part.
    • To keep track of registered participants' attendance records for previous experimental sessions.
  • There is no connection between the data collected in experimental sessions themselves, and that preserved in the "Recruitment System". Each researcher using the laboratory has agreed to keep the data from their experiment strictly confidential. At no time will data collected in any experimental session be combined with that in the ORSEE Participant Database.

Experiments:
  • Data generated during experimental sessions will be kept strictly confidential, and separate from participants' identities. Any departure from this practice must be explicitly explained to participants by the experimenter, and must first be approved by Haverford's Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is responsible for the protection of human subjects at the institution.
  • The generated, anonymous data will be used for the provision of scientific research and lectures. This work may be published, but not in connection with the identity of any specific participant.

Participants' Rights:
  • Participants may decide at any time that they no longer wish to receive invitations to experiments, and remove themselves from the database. Such requests should be sent to hc-orsee@haverford.edu.
  • Participants may request to have their data deleted at any time. Such requests should be sent to hc-orsee@haverford.edu.
  • Participants having concerns about the data being kept in the ORSEE system or its management can contact the chairperson of Haverford's Institutional Review Board (IRB), at hc-irb@haverford.edu. The IRB is a committee that monitors research by members of the Haverford community that involves human subjects, in order to protect their rights.
