This option allows you to return a submission for a study that you completed by mistake. This will show up as a "returned" submission under your submissions.
By clicking this button it means that you won't be rewarded* for the study. If you think your submission will be rejected because you did not fully complete a study you can also return the submission.
You can carry out this action by following these steps:
- Click on "Submissions" at the top left of your Prolific homepage
- Scroll to the study for which you wish to return the submission
- Click the red looped arrow symbol (shown in the image above)
A returned submission does not negatively impact your standing on Prolific.
* Note: you can still receive a partial/bonus reward when your submission is "returned". If you already received a bonus payment when your submission was "awaiting review", returning your submission does not cancel the bonus reward.
