Information for Participants


Upgrade of lab studies (as of 30/Sep/2022)
The Department Councils for Psychology and Linguistics have decided to upgrade lab studies for the coming winter term 2022/23. Studies conducted in the lab (i.e. in presence) will be additionally remunerated with ½ credit (Versuchspersonenstunde/VPh) (for each appointment). All studies will be adjusted so that the credit value displayed already includes this bonus.
With this credit increase, the responsible parties intend to make lab studies more attractive for participants, as there has been a sharp decline in lab study participation since the COVID19 pandemic.
This decision is initially only valid for the winter term 2022/23, i.e. until 30/Mar/2023.

By using SONA you can easily collect credits (VP-Stunden) or earn money. You only once need to register in SONA. Once you have done this you can access all currently available studies. You will also informed about new studies and can check in which studies you have already participated.
