How to cite Pavlovia

First of all, thank you so much the Pavlovia/Psychopy team for making data collection so easy.
I am wondering how I should cite Pavlovia in my work? Should I still be using “PsychoPy2: Experiments in behavior made easy” source as a reference?


Hello, I’m wondering the same!

Should I cite PsychoPy and Pavlovia separately? E.g. "The experiment was created using PsychoPy (Pierce et al 2019) and hosted by Pavlovia (____)?

We haven’t written a paper for you to cite Pavlovia as such. The first paper in which we mention it is the Timing Megastudy so I guess you could cite that as a proxy but I think it would also be fine just to provide the URL for people to visit themselves.
