Without Honeybee, my research projects would not be progressing at their current rate… [E]specially when a study, like mine requires a certain demographic… [I’m] incredibly thankful to have across a service that is convenient to use as a researcher and as a participant. Honeybee absolutely contributed to the success of my PhD research.
