Review of The Center for Decision Sciences (CDS)

The Center for Decision Sciences (CDS) was founded at Columbia Business School in 1999. The department serves as a resource to encourage discussion between researchers in multiple disciplines and levels at the school. Among other topics, the centre facilitates research and understanding of consumer behaviour concerning decision-making, public policy and the neurological underpinnings of decision-making. Confidentiality is guaranteed in all research; your personal information will never be given or sold to any third party.

Daniel Williams Reviewer

linkedin profile Daniel Williams – Our Editor in Chief: Dan is from Oxford, UK and is one of our reviewers who’s been with HuginX the longest. With a background in membership support at one of the largest survey companies, Dan has a lot of inside knowledge of the Market Research industry and has helped us refine our reviewing criteria. When Daniel is not working with reviews, he likes to go hiking with his dog Charlie. 

How much could I make?

Columbia offers a rate of about $16/hour if selected to participate in a study. This is fantastic news for anyone used to getting $1 or less for 15-minute surveys. On the other hand, you’ll need to expect a low volume of survey invitations, so don’t expect for this to become a substantial side gig in terms of income.

Should I sign up?

The $16/hour rate is at least twice as high as taking surveys through regular consumer panels. Surveys will also be more academic than your standard survey site, which will be great for some and irritatingly complicated for others. If you enjoy taking surveys for a company such as Prolific, you will likely enjoy this one. Just don’t expect a vast amount of survey invitations in your inbox, like with other run-of-the-mill survey sites.

Google Opinion Rewards Review Summary
Taking surveys through Google Opinion Rewards is effortless compared to many other survey sites. Surveys are short and snappy, and you don't get as quickly bored as with longer, more complex questionnaires. Because the surveys are so quick, the incentives are also low (incentive value is linked to survey length). It's a great way to earn enough credits to get a premium app or an e-book for free once in a while.

Our Values

We built HuginX around our core principles of openness, honesty and transparency. Your trust is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we’ll always be straight-up about how we review sites.

When it comes to running our website, we want to be entirely upfront about how we operate, how we make money, and how we keep the site a free resource for our millions of visitors.

We don’t accept payment to provide positive reviews, and providers will never have a say in how we choose the best sites. Our aim is to put you, the reader, first and foremost at all times. 

A list of practices we never engage in:

  1. We will never accept money to review a product
  2. We will never accept money to change a product review
  3. We will never accept money to turn a blind eye to an issue or flaw
  4. We will never accept money to bias our research or investigations

Center for the Decision Sciences Review Summary
A niche survey site offering high incentives for taking surveys on academic research subjects. It's a great way to earn some extra money if you fit the target group, but don't expect your inbox to be filled up with survey invitations anytime soon.
