List of journal articles using the open data
Much of the data collected through this website is made publicly available. No personally identifing information is collected so the data can not be used to profile individuals, but in aggregate can be used for psychological research. The data has been used as the basis of many different published papers. This page lists the best ones sorted by year. If you know of any more to add, please send an email!
This list does not include papers that have used the actual interactive tests on the website in their own data collection (this is discoraged), papers not yet published in a journal, or papers that cite this website for other reasons.
