REVOLUTIONIZING EXPERIMENTAL ECONOMICS
HIVE redefines experimental economics research, offering a comprehensive and accessible platform that empowers researchers, fosters collaboration, and promises breakthrough insights. Join us on this transformative journey as we shape the future of experimental economics.
What is HIVE?
HIVE, which stands for Highly Integrated Virtual Environment, is an innovative platform tailored for Experimental Economics research. It serves as an all-inclusive hub, redefining how researchers approach experimental studies in this field.
Unveiling the Possibilities on HIVE
Share and Discover Code: Collaborate with fellow researchers by sharing your experimental code or discovering others' contributions, fostering a community-driven approach to experimental software development.
Seamless Experiment Development: Program, test, and debug your experiments within an intuitive cloud environment, streamlining the development process.
Effortless Deployment: Instantly deploy your code onto our servers, ensuring smooth execution of experiments.
Subject Recruitment Made Easy: Access a diverse subject pool, comprising students and (eventually) non-student participants for both online and in-person experiments.
Automated Payment Integration: Seamlessly compensate subjects using integrations with OTREE and other compatible experimental packages, ensuring accurate and easy payments.
Data Integrity Assurance: Automatically archive data from experiments run on our HIVE servers, safeguarding against tampering and maintaining data integrity.
Knowledge Sharing: Share experiment data, encouraging collaboration and new insights.
Exploration of Shared Data: Analyze shared experimental data from others, uncovering new perspectives and research angles.
Emergent Experiments: Link subjects across datasets to create innovative "emergent experiments," amplifying the utility of existing data.
Blanket Data: Leverage large-scale basic preference elicitation data (such as risk preference) across the pool, mitigating redundancy and further reducing the cost of experiments
Free for Academia: Academic users enjoy free access and no fees on subject payments, eliminating the need for costly third-party recruiting platforms.
Enhanced Experience: HIVE prioritizes and understands the needs of experimental economics researchers.
Empowering Universities and Labs
Seamless Transition: Easily migrate existing local subject pools to the expansive HIVE pool, facilitating a unified research environment and creating positive externalities.
Efficient Recruitment: Simplify subject recruitment and automate payments for both online and in-person experiments.
Synergistic Linking: Anonymously link subjects across experiments, unleashing novel research opportunities through data aggregation.
Securing a Bright Future for HIVE
Strategic funding initiatives will ensure HIVE's success. We have applied for funding from the Sloan foundation and have plans to apply for future funding opportunities to support the network.
How can I get Involved?
HIVE needs your feedback and suggestions. We are seeking partner universities to join our early-access network. If you have comments, suggestions, or if you would like to partner with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
HIVE Background, Status, and Roadmap
HIVE is the outcome of combining two platforms, the ESSRN cloud programming environment created by John Duffy, Stephan Jagau, and Yiyang Min and the OSO subject recruiting platform created by Greg Leo. We have completed initial app development and are currently testing the system.
