Scientific researchers need your help to complete academic experiments!



On SocialSci, you will find research studies being conducted from around the world. By registering and taking part in these studies, you earn not only knowledge, but cash, points, and prizes.

SocialSci aims to connect academic researchers with people around the world. These people in turn contribute to science by participating in online scientific surveys and by visiting researchers in their labs. It is our hope that you will help further science by joining us here on SocialSci.com.



Earn points for every survey you complete – the longer the survey, the more points you earn. Currently, the points earned by taking three to six surveys (under 30 minutes) can be redeemed for a $5 dollar Amazon gift card, among other choices. Earn even more by participating in live survey listings, where you visit a researcher in-lab. These studies pay from $25 to over $3000, typically paid via cash or check!

While completing surveys and helping to further science, you can redeem your earned points via our secure system, and receive a gift card code!


Safe & Secure

Our systems were designed from the ground up to be secure and protect your privacy. Working with leading university administrators, we created a system that meets the most stringent requirements, even for the most sensitive research topics. We collect as little personally identifiable information as possible, and store it in a way that makes it impossible to associate with your username. Rest assured that your responses remain private, and that neither researchers nor SocialSci staff can identify the person behind a given response.

As we don't associate your account to your email address, we encourage you to sign up for our general email list in order to learn about the latest news and new surveys being conducted in the system. Also, don’t forget to log in often to check for new surveys and to redeem your earned points for rewards!
