Phonic for Academics.

Join thousands of academic researchers from hundreds of top universities like Stanford, MIT and Harvard.

Our background.

In early 2020, we launched the earliest version of Phonic within academic research circles at Stanford and the University of Waterloo. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we helped thousands of individual researchers transition their in-person research online, and built hundreds of features to support specifically academic use cases like Qualtrics and NVIVO integrations.

We also believe in open research, one reason we offer Phonic at-cost to students and academic researchers. Inquire with our team about this academic discount.

I love how versatile Phonic is. I have been able to embed Phonic surveys and recorders into a Qualtrics survey for my research. It’s very easy to use and the Phonic documents lay everything out for you. The customer service is unparalleled! They respond to email so quickly, fix problems and troubleshoot code, and take suggestions seriously.

I like the ability to run audio and video-based experiments at scale—it's been nearly impossible for years until Phonic.
