Importing z-Tree data into R

Oliver Kirchkamp

The software z-Tree is used for thousands of economic experiments worldwide. z-Tree stores experimental data in a way that minimises the risk of losing data. However, it may be cumbersome to manually read this data into a statistical package. The purpose of the R-package zTree is to make the process of importing data from z-Tree into the statistical package R transparent, reproducible and simple.
