Description: A huge proportion of participants in psychological studies are sampled from online services such as MTurk and Prolific. These services have the potential to accelerate the self-reforming process that is currently undergoing in psychology (e.g., by enabling larger sample sizes), but also pose new threats to data validity. This workshop has a twofold goal: First, it will provide insights for researchers to maximize the quality of the data collected from such samples. We will address issues such as the supposed prevalence of “bots”, participant nonnaiveté, and participant misrepresentation. Second, it aims at initiating a conversation about how to promote data collection practices that align with the short- and long-term interests of both the scientific community and research participants.
