Information for Participants

Lab studies continue (as of 19/05/2020)
From 25th of May we will resume offering lab studies. Of course, the health of all participants and researchers has priority. Therefore, additional protective measures are in place. We welcome all people who are willing to participate and would like to draw your attention to the following points:

  • Each lab has its own hygiene regulations, at the beginning of an appointment you will be informed about them.
  • Please only come to the lab if you do not have any flu-like symptoms (in this case please cancel before the appointment).
  • Please bring a face covering and put it on when entering the lab.
  • To be able to trace potential infections, we will collect contact information from all participants and store them for about 4 weeks.

Signatures in times of Corona (as of 29/04/2020)
The signatures that psychology students (exception: sport psychology) normally have to get for credits (VP-Stunden) in SONA are not required during COVID-19! A SONA printout is currently sufficient for the acknowledgement (for an instruction see the FAQs) . This is a temporary solution. Rules how this will be handled in the future are currently being discussed in the department council psychology.

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.

Familiarise yourself with the SONA functionality  in this YouTube tutorial.
