The Call For Participants website could help you to connect

If recruiting participants for your research is a challenge then Call For Participants could help you.

Participant recruitment can have its pitfalls. Researchers often spend a great deal of time, effort and money producing a host of recruitment materials in order to attract candidates to take part in research. These often include distributing flyers and posters and sending bulk emails and letters.

Call For Participants is a website that connects researchers with large audiences of prospective participants.

The website is used by over 360 universities worldwide, including the University of Leeds, and is proving to be a successful way to recruit volunteers for research.

You can create a landing page for your research, giving the project exposure and setting out the criteria for participants. You can also attract people to sign up to take part in your study by offering rewards such as vouchers.
