Getting Started

 

General Information

This will vary considerably from one study to another, as organisational researchers employ a wide range of methods to collect data. Some activities include filling out questionnaires, performing various tasks on a computer and taking part in discussions or interviews. These activities may take place online or in person. Before signing up for studies on Sona, you will be able to read a short description of what each study entails.

No. The most of our lab studies only consist of one session. It is very unlikely that you will be asked to visit COR more than three times to complete a study.

The payment for completing the study will not be immediate as finance will need some time to process the claims.There is no need to send us an email about your completion as the system will note your completion.

We aim to transfer the payment to you within a month from the day the study closes.

We will not entertain requests for transfers any earlier than amonth from the day the study closes. Please ensure that your bank account details are up to date. If you have changed your bank account details, please email the COR manager at: [email protected]

 

Sona is an online platform used by many universities and institutions around the world to recruit participants for research studies. COR has its own Sona site, where members of our participant pool can view and sign up for studies offered by our researchers. Once you have a Sona account, you will also receive email notifications regarding currently available studies, your upcoming study appointments, and so on.

Participation Status & Compensation

No. There is no need to send us an email about your completion as the system will note your completion.

To view all your study sign-ups (past and present) as well as your “credit status” (i.e., participation status) for each of these studies, please log into Sona and click on “My Schedule/Status” in the menu bar. There are four possible types of credit status: “Awaiting Action from Researcher”, “Participated”, “Failure to Appear — Excused”, and “Failure to Appear — Unexcused”.

For COR studies, you receive cash, and not credits, as a token of appreciation for your participation. Hence, the system displays '0 credits'. Also, credits do not indicate the cash rewards you have accumulated thus far. Your compensation should be credited to your bank account within a month of the study's closure.

The “points” you see on Sona actually do not mean much. Points are arbitrary numerical values that participants can potentially earn by completing studies. At universities where students are required to participate in studies as part of a course, professors or researchers may use the point system on Sona to keep track of how many different studies (or how many hours of research) students have completed. Since COR is not associated with any specific courses at INSEAD, our participants are always compensated with real money, and never with course credits.Hence, your points do not translate to anything tangible. You should only pay attention to whether your participation status on Sona is accurate (see the FAQ entry above), rather than how many points you have received.

The payment for completing the study will not be immediate as finance will need some time to process the claims.There is no need to send us an email about your completion as the system will note your completion.

We aim to transfer the payment to you within a month from the day the survey closes. 

We will not entertain requests for transfers any earlier than amonth from the day the study closes. Please ensure that your bank account details are up to date. If you have changed your bank account details, please email the COR manager at: [email protected]
