Connect is CloudResearch's own crowdsourcing platform for online research. It draws on all of our knowledge and experience with hundreds of different online platforms and creates the best research experience in the industry.
Connect is the first online platform that allows participants to rate the projects they participate in and the researchers who post the projects. This two-way reputation system—researchers rating participants and participants ratings researchers—creates an environment that rewards good behavior from everyone, improving the quality of research.
When people sign up on Connect, we vet them with the most sophisticated and up-to-date data quality measures anywhere online. We continue monitoring quality once people are on our site, giving us control over the quality of participants and the ability to intervene when problems arise. The result is trustworthy data.
Sentry is the only tool that uses advanced behavioral assessment alongside technological solutions to identify and remove low-quality participants before they can enter a survey.
With features like Connect Teams, our accounting tools, quotas that are built into your project, the ability to message participants in the app, and the ability to do things like schedule a project launch time in advance, Connect is stocked with ways to make your research more efficient.

" The Connect platform has been a game changer for me! My research collaborations span multiple universities and the Teams feature allows us all to stay informed about our data collection. I am able to fund my account with my research funds but allow collaborators to administer funds for our projects. This saves us all quite a bit of work in terms of cross-university reimbursements. I highly recommend it! "
" As far as my dissertation, the pre-tests surrounding my legitimacy manipulation worked wonderfully. I’m investigating the impact of perceptions of illegitimacy on individuals’ reactions to being put into positions of low power. I was really impressed with Connect’s UI and participant bounce-back tracking, which was an issue with my previous attempt over the summer on MTurk. "
" I’ve been collecting data for nearly a decade and I'll never go back to any other online panel. My team and I love Connect's user-friendly interface, ability to target specific samples, and perhaps most importantly, the consistency through which it has given us the highest quality data. The participant’s have given us invaluable feedback, which led to improved study designs and higher retention rates in our longitudinal studies. Using Connect is a no brainer and receives my highest possible recommendation. "
