About the Harvard Digital Lab

The Harvard Digital Lab for the Social Sciences (DLABSS) is an online experiments and survey community for social science research. With the Harvard Digital Lab, you can participate in scientific research from your own computer. You can participate only once, or many times easily, thanks to our unique structure. By participating in our Master DLABSS Survey, you can join our research pool, which lets you participate in many other surveys without providing your basic information each time.  Interested in getting more involved in the research? Join our subject pool and we will reach out to you when there is a survey or experiment that matches your interests and background.

To show our appreciation for your participation, we will raffle a $50 Amazon gift card every month. The more surveys you complete, the more times you are entered into the lottery. The winner will receive the gift card by email.

The plot below provides a visual representation of the growth and progress Harvard DLABSS has made since it began. It is updated each week to keep participants and researchers up to date with how we are progressing. Check back in a few weeks to see how the plot has changed!
