  Conducting Online Behavioral Research Using Crowdsourcing Services in Japan
■ 概要
  The present study aims to extend findings from validation studies examining Amazon's Mechanical Turk (MTurk) as a online participant pool for behavior studies to non-MTurk (i.e., Japanese) crowdsourcing samples in which workers have different ethnic backgrounds from those of MTurk. We conducted three surveys (N = 426, 453, 167, respectively) designed to compare Japanese crowdsourcing workers and university students in terms of their demographics, personality traits, reasoning skills, and attention to instructions. The results generally align with previous studies and suggest that non-MTurk participants are also eligible for behavioral research. Furthermore, small screen devices are found to impair participants’ attention to instructions. Several recommendations concerning this sample are presented.
