Abstract
Many psychological experiments require human participants for which researchers often need to share the same equipment (computers, fMRI scanners, etc.). As a result recruitment of participants is a time consuming task that requires coordination between researchers. Here we present a new free online tool for participant recruitment called Banto that manages participant recruitment and equipment booking. Banto was partially developed with the help of the Department of Perception, Cognition and Action at the Max Planck Institute of Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen, Germany. Banto works like an online posting board: experimenters post their experiments and participants sign up for them. Once a participant signs up for an experiment appointment, all equipment that experimenters specified as necessary for the experiment (e.g. computers, rooms) is automatically booked along. While Banto is free to use we ask users to support the project by claiming some overhead costs for participant recruitment in future grant applications.
