Beyond the Turk: an Empirical Comparison of Alternative Platforms For Crowdsourcing Online Research
We compared several available alternative crowdsourcing services to Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk). Whereas some sites proved unusable, we found two (CrowdFlower and MicroWorkers) that showed adequate data quality, although sometimes inferior to MTurk’s. Between the sites, we also found psychometric and demographic differences that could affect research outcomes.
