Using ERPsim for Research Projects

Every year, dozens of academic projects make use of ERPsim for experimental research. More than 500 ERPsim research articles, over 600 including citations, are listed in Google Scholar.

Throughout the last two decades, professors and PhD candidates have improved their teaching careers and increased their chances of tenure, by combining teaching and research using ERPsim.

Honouring HEC Montréal's mission to support and encourage research and knowledge transfer in all areas of management, ERPsim Lab stimulates worldwide research projects by providing free access to its business simulation technology to eligible projects, fostering an environment of collaboration and research excellence.

How to Qualify for an ERPsim Research License

Eligibility is essential to filing a request to obtain free ERPsim licenses for research projects. Use the following guidelines to gain a better understanding of the requirements and qualify for this program.

Requirements

  • The project must be for scientific research and experimental development, it should involve systematic investigation or search that is carried out in the field of science or technology by means of an experiment or analysis and that will result in the generation of new technological knowledge or achieving technological advancement for the purpose of creating new, or improving existing, materials, devices, products or processes.

  • The project must be conducted under an experimental research setting where one or more independent variables are manipulated and applied to one or more dependent variables to measure their effect on the latter. The effect of the independent variables on the dependent variables is usually observed and recorded over some time, to aid researchers in drawing a reasonable conclusion regarding the relationship between these 2 variable types.

  • The project must be approved by the university Research Ethics Board (REB), ensuring that the research meets ethical requirements and protects the welfare of the study participants.

  • The project must be approved by the ERPsim Lab research committee.

  • Projects should be submitted by sending the research project description and the REB certificate to erpsim@hec.ca

Examples of qualified research projects

Example 1

Karran, Alexander, Theophile Demazure, Pierre-Majorique Léger, Elise Labonte-LeMoyne, Sylvain Sénécal, Marc Fredette, and Gilbert Babin. “Towards a Hybrid Passive BCI for the Modulation of Sustained Attention Using EEG and FNIRS.” Frontiers in Human Neuroscience 13, no. 393 (2019). https://doi.org/10/ggt5z9.

The main objective of this research project was to test the effectiveness of a brain-computer interface in regulating users’ attention in monitoring tasks. The participants, as individuals, played the ERPsim Logistics Introduction game with only stock transfer decisions and a simulation speed set to run very slow.


Example 2

Oz, Burak; Tran-Nguyen, Kevin; Coursaris, Constantinos K.; Robert, Jacques; and Léger, Pierre-Majorique, "Using Digital Nudges on Analytics Dashboards to Reduce Anchoring Bias" (2020). SIGHCI 2020 Proceedings. 3.

The objective was to test the effectiveness of digital nudging in mitigating anchoring bias. The participants played the ERPsim Logistics Introduction game with only stock transfer decisions and the simulation speed running very fast and decisions allowed only in between rounds.
