Authorship Guidelines

As a large scientific collaboration that aims to be inclusive, we developed guidelines and criteria for how to assign authorship to individuals involved in ManyPrimates projects.

Ethics Guidelines

We developed ethical guidelines for procedures and participation in ManyPrimates studies.


We encourage everyone who is interested in primate cognition to get involved. Access to primates is NOT a prerequisite.



As a proof of concept, this study was a first step towards building an infrastructure that facilitates large-scale collaboration in primate cognition research. In this pilot study, we conducted a short-term memory task with 176 primates from 12 species and 11 sites.

ManyPrimates 1: Short-Term Memory

The first ManyPrimates project is a continuation of our pilot study. We hope to increase the number of species and individuals per species in order to make meaningful inferences about the evolution of short-term memory abilities in the primate lineage.

ManyPrimates 2

We are currently collecting ideas for the second ManyPrimates project. If you are interested in joining the project, please get in touch.
