In this paper we describe the results of different techniques applied to characterize experimentally the pulse shape discrimination capability of liquid scintillators. A detailed comparison of the results obtained with each method is reported, together with the description of an optimization strategy which can be adopted to obtain the best exploitation of the intrinsic PSD feature of the scintillator samples.
