SONA will send you an email containing:
- User ID (This will be your username on the SONA website)
- SONA Identity Code (Sona ID)
- Your automatically generated password (change this to something you can remember)
We recommend saving this email for future reference and changing the password that was assigned to you.
Your SONA ID is a 5 digit number unique to you. Researchers will see this number instead of your name when taking a study. Our study surveys require you to know and enter this number in order to receive credit.
Now that you have finished account creation, move on to the next section.
The Koraleski CAB Lab will be open Monday-Friday during the fall semester, time TBD. Please stop by Mammel Hall 270 to meet with a lab assistant. They will help you choose and sign up for a lab study.
By taking a lab study, you get the full lab experience, including the use of our state-of-the-art technology like eye-tracking, galvanic skin response, and facial recognition! *Your participation in these studies contribute to the success of UNO graduate students, faculty, and the College of Business Administration.*
Signing up for studies online:
User ID: Your User ID was chosen at account creation; it is not your 5 digit SONA ID.
Password: Your password will either be the system-assigned password sent to your email or the password you created.

At the bottom of the Study Information page, click the green View Available Timeslots.
If you are taking an in-person study, please show up 10 minutes before your time slot.
