Abstract: During the Covid-19 pandemic, many in-person behavioral experiment labs were shuttered. Thankfully, web-based solutions allowed behavioral research to continue. Online experiments provide additional benefits to behavioral studies but also have a number of drawbacks and potential issues that must be addressed. Here, we introduce a pipeline for building a web-based behavioral experiment by using a media decision-making study as an example. We also discuss methods to address data quality concerns and other issues in online experimental designs.
