AHPA researchers are invited to participate in a study on guidelines for ethical decision-making about social media.
La Trobe University is conducting a research project: Recruiting, retaining and tracing participants via social media: Exploring the ethical concerns of ethics committee members and researchers to inform the development of guidelines.
Increasingly researchers are using social media to recruit, retain and trace participants, yet there are few formal guidelines to assist with ethical decision making about social media. In this project, they are asking researchers for their views and ethical concerns about using social media in research. The findings will be used to develop ethical guidelines for using social media in research.
Participation in the study involves completing a 20 minute anonymous online survey. Neither the researchers nor your organisation will be identified in the survey.
We are inviting all active Australian researchers to participate. You can participate whether or not you have experience using social media in research.
