Abdullah Almaatouq, Joshua Becker, James Houghton, Nicolas Paton, Duncan Watts, and Mark Whiting’s paper “Empirica: a virtual lab for high-throughput macro-level experiments” has been published in Behavior Research Methods. The paper introduces Empirica, a modular virtual lab that offers a solution to the usability-functionality trade-off that researchers face when developing virtual lab experiments. By employing a “flexible defaults” design strategy, Empirica enables researchers to maintain complete “build anything” flexibility while offering a development platform that is accessible to novice programmers.
