Values and Everyday Experiences
Thank you for your interest in taking part in this study. Before you proceed with the experiment, please read and make sure that you understand the following information.
The study aims to understand how people’s values may impact upon their feelings and experiences of day-to-day life. You will be asked to complete six short questionnaires which are designed to assess certain values, feelings, and experiences. We do not expect any physical, psychological, or emotional risks to be associated with taking part in this study. The study should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
This study has undergone an ethical assessment in line with the University of Surrey's guidelines (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All individuals over the age of 18 are invited to take part in this study. Your participation is voluntary. You can stop and withdraw from the study at any time without penalty. You do not need to provide any reason for withdrawing. In order to withdraw simply close the browser prior to completing the survey and your data will not be stored. Unfortunately, we will not be able to exclude your data once you have submitted your responses. This is because responses are stored anonymously and hence we are unable to locate any specific individual’s data. No personal, identifying information such as names or contact details will be collected as part of the experiment.
If you are eligible to receive a lab token or would like to be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 Activity Gift Token, then at the end of the study you will be directed to a separate survey whereby you will be asked to include your email address so that we can contact you if you win the prize. The personal information that you may input here will be stored separately from your survey responses.
The data collected as part of this study will be stored for at least 10 years by the University. Only the three researchers will have access to the data. The responses that you provide as part of this survey will be used for this study only. They may be written up for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and presented at relevant conferences, however they will not be used in future studies not outlined in this information sheet.
If you would like to receive a summary of the findings once the research is complete, or would like to participate in future research on this topic, then please contact Amy Isham (email@example.com).
Any complaint or concerns about any aspects of the way you have been dealt with during the course of the study will be addressed; please contact Amy Isham, Principal Investigator on firstname.lastname@example.org, 01483 684314.
