About: This spreadsheet includes papers employing conventional laboratory experiments, online laboratory experiments, and artefactual field (or lab-in-the-field) experiments that were published in top general interest journals in economics. The latter two categories include experiments with non-student subjects who engage in tasks and/or games from conventional laboratory experiments either online or in the field (e.g., MTurkers performing a real-effort task as in DellaVigna and Pope QJE 2018 or individuals from rural Paraguay playing a trust game as in Finan and Schechter ECMA 2012).

Note 1: I use the terminology introduced by Harrison and List (JEL 2004). According to their taxonomy, a conventional lab experiment is one that employs a standard subject pool of students, an abstract framing, and an imposed set of rules; an artefactual field experiment is the same as a conventional lab experiment but with a nonstandard subject pool (for example, Harrison, Lau, and Williams AER 2002, who took the lab experimental design of Coller and Williams EE 1999 into the field with a representative sample of the Danish population); a framed field experiment is the same as an artefactual field experiment but with field context in either the commodity, task, or information set that the subjects can use (for example, the auctions that List AER 2001 conducted with sport-card collectors, using sports cards as the commodity and at a show where they trade such commodities); a natural field experiment is the same as a framed field experiment but where the environment is one where the subjects naturally undertake these tasks and where the subjects do not know that they are in an experiment (for example, the manipulation of betting markets by Camerer JPE 1998 or the solicitation of charitable contribu- tions by List and Lucking-Reiley JPE 2002).
