This guide will show you how to cite Gorilla in your papers and how to use our logos on your research posters or in conference talks.

If you have a new publication you want to share with us, please fill in our Publications Form. We can then share your publication with other users or on social media.

In an ethics application, article or pre-print

Citing Gorilla is the easiest way to demonstrate that you have used a validated online research platform. If accurate stimulus or response timing is important for your results, you may also like to cite our timing accuracy paper.

To cite Gorilla in an article or pre-print, please link to the main website. We also recommend stating the date window within which data was collected, so that someone reading the study could cross-reference this with our release notes.
