Seeking Participants for Forensic Study

Post by jenbarron » Thu Apr 17, 2014 6:41 pm

My name is Jenny Barron. I am undertaking a Doctorate in Forensic Psychology at the University of Nottingham under the supervision of Professor Kevin Browne. The below study has received ethical approval from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Ethic Committee.

I am seeking UK participants for a short online survey exploring the factors affecting attitudes to sex offenders. I am interested in whether these factors are different for people who work with offenders and people who don't work with offenders. If you are interested, please follow this link for further information: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/attitudestooffending2014

Any questions about this study can be posted here or sent via e-mail to me at lwxjcba@nottingham.ac.uk

Hi Jenbarron

Can you please have a look at our guidance for recruiting participants on Clinpsy please:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=38

the main points being:
So - if you are advertising...please include:

-Your name and a means of contacting you (normally this should be given on the website of your questionnaire, which will allow you to keep some anonymity here, but please consider any issues that revealing your identity to participants will create)
-Your affiliation (e.g. your university)
-If you're a student, who is supervising you
-Who has given ethical approval for your study
Can you either edit your first post to include this information, or if you cannot edit it, post it below/PM it to myself/another moderator and we will update your initial post to make sure it complies with the rules

thank you

Gilly

Done - I'd be really interested in the results or more information about what in particular you're looking at. :D

Thanks all - I've had a brilliant response. I would definitely recommend online research as means of recruiting large sample sizes. I have used practitioner forums and social media and have recruited over 600 participants in two weeks.

For those that are interested, I will post a summary of my findings here (and hopefully a link to a published paper...)

Still another 3 weeks until I am closing the questionnaire, so any additional participants still very much appreciated

Jenny
