Page Monitors

"Distill", "Prolific Assistant", and other page monitors are not developed by Prolific and therefore we can’t guarantee they will work with our site.

The studies page on the Prolific website ( automatically updates with new studies every one minute. The count of available studies changes whenever there is a new study, so if you leave this tab active in your browser, you will see as soon as a new study is available for you.

This should mean that it is unnecessary for you to use a page monitor on the Prolific site, however, we are aware that many of our users have been relying on page monitors to get notifications of studies. 

We encourage you to provide feedback on this system to, and we will be reviewing our notification system (currently via email) to consider whether we can make improvements.
