***UPDATE*** The experiment month webpage, with more information, is now available here.
As many of you know, a year ago we conducted the first Experiment Month Initiative, a program designed to help philosophers (particularly those new to empirical research) conduct experimental studies. I was really impressed by the results that came out of this project. Several papers produced under the auspices of the initiative have already been published; others are currently under review. And a number of experiments were discussed online, here and elsewhere. For examples, see these posts I turned up from this blog:
In any case, I wanted to let people know that we have arranged resources to conduct a second round of Experiment Month. Proposals for the initiative should be submitted on June 15th and should correspond to the IRB (institutional review board) format for your specific university. (We request that proposals be made in this format so that it will be easy to submit the proposed experiment to your specific IRB, which will have to grant approval to conduct the experiment before it appears online.) We are willing to offer advice and help in completing these forms, as they may include questions that will be unfamiliar to many non-experimentalists.
If you are interested in running a study, you can send your study proposal to the Experiment Month staff at email@example.com. Then, if your proposal is selected for inclusion, we will give you advice in refining the study, conduct the study online, send you the results, and help out with any statistical analysis you may need. We also welcome questions at this address.
