A representative selection of research subjects is of great importance to any researcher. This, however, is sadly not always achieved. For instance, 7/10 participants in psychological research studies are psychology students themselves. Consequently, we strive to increase the representativity of participant selection and increase the diversity of the research subjects. This is done to ensure that your participant selection is representative of the real world, thus making for more reliable research findings.

How does Research Work?

All research projects are different. To make sure you get what you need, without paying extra for it, we always try to customize our service to your needs. Here’s how it works.
Understanding the project
We start all collaborations with information gathering. This way, we can decide if our services suit your needs. This also allows us to structure the recruitment process and calculate a price your project.
Project proposal
We work project-based. This means we estimate how many submissions will be necessary in order to supply you with enough participants for your study, and offer you a time window and price. In contrast to traditional advertisement, where the only guarantee is that some number of people will view your ad, Trialy only charges for the people that signs up for your study and fulfills criteria to participate.
When the project proposal is approved we create advertisement material based on your preferences. We initiate the advertisement, and you can access the data of people that signed up for your study via a provided secure log-in. Then, you make contact them according to the study’s protocol.

Common Questions

Here's a collection of questions we often receive from researchers and sponsors
Trialy is a service that provides all the necessary components for the recruitment stage of a research study. We divide this process into three simple steps!
  1. Through the use of advertisements on, search engines and different social media platforms, we are able to reach your target group and create participant interest and involvement in your study.
  2. We use smart entry forms to gather participant applications. Using an algorith, we then screen the list of potential participants in order to find and select those most suited to be a part of your research studie.
  3. You will be given access to a secure database, where you will find the contact details of all potential participants that have met your requirements and signed up to be a part of your research study. All that's left for you to do, is to make the appointments!
Trialy provides a service that is aimed at anyone who is conducting any kind of research, and finds themselves in need of test subjects or patients. We have handled the recruitment of university level research studies on psychology and diet, as well as medically sponsored clinical studies. The organizational role of the person contacting us varies a great deal. We may engage in dialogue with a research nurse, who seeks new ways of managing recruitment. We may also be in contact with a unit director, who is concerned by the prospect of a failed recruitment phase and the problems it could present their clinic or company with.
Currently we're only operating in Sweden. If you are interested in our services and run a project in another country, you are still welcome with a request.
We will handle the most demanding part of the recruitment phase – reaching the patients, participants or test subjects. We structure the recruitment process, which makes for smoother and easier planning and resource management. It also drastically reduces the risk of missed deadlines and delayed publications. We provide advice on issues of recruitment and communication regarding the research subjects and patients of research studies.
Trialy AB is founded by Adam Hultin, Sweden. We have a varied network of consultants at our disposal and have received financial backing from Lund University Innovation.
We advertise your research study using search engines and different social media platforms. Google, Facebook and their respective networks are featured most frequently, but we adjust the channels used in our advertising according to your needs and the target audience you are trying to reach. In addition to this, we also use our own channels for advertising. With this level of variation we are able to ensure that your participant quotas are filled, which is why our service offers a guarantee of results – you pay, when we deliver.
Each year, corporations and organizations relocate increasing amounts of their advertising resources from traditional to digital media platforms. If your goal is to recruit test subjects, digital advertising is by far the most effective alternative. Trialy is up to 8 times more cost effective than journal advertising.
  • Our advertisements are only showed to those interested in your study, which means you won't be paying for advertisements that do not generate results.
  • The gap between the seeing an advertisement and signing up to be a part of the research study is far smaller. When a user sees the advertisement for your study, they are just a click away from an entry form.
  • The possibilities of directing the flow of patients and test subjects are increased. Should you temporarily be unable to handle the flow of test participants, we are able to pause the advertising, to then resume it when you are ready once more.
What is GDPR and how does it affect recruitment? The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was taken into effect on the 25th of May, 2018. It presented a hightened level of responsibility for organizations and companies who handle data. Trialy is a GDPR-compliant service, which means, among other things, that we use clear and informed consent, encrypt all sensitive data and that we have a transparent policy of privacy. Should you have any questions regarding our compliance with GDPR within specific areas, or how your recruitment should be adapted the the regulations in place, do not hesitate to contact us!
Trialy has seperate confidentiality agreements in place with our users. These are not connected to the arrangements made between research subject and research group. Therefore, we are not included in the confidential arrangements between research subject and research group, which means that we do not take part in any information regarding who is, or is not, chosen to take part in your study. Our job is to deliver a comprehensive list of test participants who are willing to take part in your study, whereupon we leave the research to you!
