MuPsych Custom Study
MuPsych is an experience sampling app that collects data during real-time listening episodes on mobile phones.

The MuPsych app is now available as a data collection tool for all music researchers, through the creation of custom ESM studies.

Possible uses include:
● Adding a newly developed survey/ questionnaire to MuPsych, to determine how the items relate to everyday listening behaviours
● Screening participants prior to a laboratory experiment, to determine how relevant variables change over natural episodes, or for the selection of personal music for experimental conditions
● Comparing the effects of music to other everyday stimuli, through the use of non-music experience sampling reports
● Any other custom design to tie existing research to the ecologically valid and real-time measurements of the mobile ESM

Please note that this is available for academic purposes only, and must only be used for a specified research project.
