Ethics Application Form | My Assignment Tutor

Course:Project module:Module code:Student surname:Student forename(s):Student ID:Title of project:Supervisor:Date:15/04/2021 Where possible, this form adopts the same sequence of sections as that of the final project report. You must be direct, accurate and complete when filling in the sections of this form. If your proposal is too vague to allow evaluation you will be asked to submit a more detailed proposal. You must complete all sections.If you first write on a different document and then transfer the written text to the Project Outline and Ethics Application Form, make sure you use Merge Formatting, which is available in MS Word 2010 and following version, in such a way that the old formatting of your document will not interfere with that of the Project Outline and Ethics Application Form (e.g., https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/word-2010-keyboard-shortcut-to-paste-unformatted-text/). If you use an older version of MS Word or another text processor, you are advised to first copy and paste your text in Notepad (or other basic text processor), and then copy your text from Notepad and paste it in the Project Outline and Ethics Application Form. Delete either NO or YES to the following statement: Is this a revised project?NOYES If you answered YES to the above question, highlight all the changes you have made to the Project Outline and Ethics Application Form, and explain below how you have addressed in your revision the ethical concern(s) raised by the referee of your previous submission (no word limit). 1. INTRODUCTION [AND RESEARCH QUESTION(S) AND/OR RESEARCH HYPOTHESIS(ES)] Give a brief description of the problem to be investigated, outlining the background to the problem including the key background sources and previous research within the subject area, and end this section by stating clearly the research question(s) and/or research hypothesis(es). If you propose a complex model involving several variables you should insert a path diagram of the model as a single figure in JPEG format (total number of words: Min 500 words, Max 1000 words, including listed references; a figure counts as 0 words; number of listed references: Min 3, Max 5). 2. METHOD 2.1 Study design Outline the proposed design of the study. If an experimental design, state the variables you plan to measure, specifying which ones are the dependent variables, the independent variables, and the control variables (if any), and whether it is a between-participants, within-participants, or mixed design; moreover, add a flowchart of the stimulus sequence. If a correlational study, state the variables you plan to measure, specifying which ones are the criterion variables, the predictor variables, the control variables (if any), the mediator variables (if any), and the moderator variables (if any). If another study design is proposed, describe accurately the nature of the study. No matter which study design you propose, here you have to convince the reader that the proposed design will allow to assess empirically the research question(s) and/or research hypothesis(es) that you stated in the Introduction section of this form (no word limit). 2.2 Participants Specify the population from which you will draw your participants, how they will be accessed, and how many you will need and why. Specify any inclusion/exclusion criteria that will be applied. If you intend to sample from special populations (e.g., school children, elderly, or other vulnerable participants) specify the number of participants per age group or diagnosis and indicate what arrangements you have made (or will be making) to gain access to the participants (no word limit). 2.3 Materials Specify all the materials you intend to use in your study. This should include any stimulus materials as well as data collection methods. Say whether these materials are pre-existing (e.g., standard psychometric tests, scales, or interview schedule/questions) or whether you plan to produce your own. If pre-existing, you must give the exact name of each test or scale and provide a reference to the published study that first validated that measurement instrument (do not attach these tests or scales to this form). If produced on your own, you must give the verbatim (i.e., the exact wording) of the instructions to participants and of each of the individual items of your scales. List all equipment, test material, computer programs, accommodation, and technical help1 that you may require, and the approximate length of time for which these are needed (no word limit). 2.4 Procedure Explain the procedure through which you plan to collect your data. Explain how you intend to approach potential study participants, how you will brief them about the study, how you will obtain informed consent from them and debrief them after participation. 2.5 Briefing-Consent Form You must give the verbatim (i.e., the exact wording) in the Briefing-Consent form. This is the “contract” between you and your study participants. In the Briefing section of the form you should explain in simple words the topic of the research (but you do not need to state the research question/s) and procedures to the participants, including what you expect them to do (e.g., filling in a set of questionnaires on a topic – describe the topic) and how long their participation will take (e.g., how many questions they will have to answer and how long it will take to answer them). In the Consent section of the form, you should explain how you are going to protect participants’ confidentiality. Moreover, you should state participants’ right to withdraw from the study at any time without prejudice to them, and explain how they can exert such right in practice. Finally, you should promise a debrief, and explain how and when you will deliver it to the participants (no word limit). PARTICIPANT BRIEFING-CONSENT FORM Title of study: Fill in Name of investigator: Fill in Name of supervisor: Fill inBRIEFING To conclude whether social media is the cause of heightened amount of anxiety amongst the young community.

You should explain in simple words the nature of the study, your research hypotheses, and the potential usefulness of the study. Moreover, you should provide non-technical references (ideally, these will be freely available on the Internet – give the hyperlinks) to the topic of your research and, depending on whether the study may lead participants to realize that they have a problem, to support centres (e.g., Alcoholic Anonymous for a study on alcohol consumption). Finally, you should state that you and your supervisor are available to provide further explanations about the study, and provide the names and email addresses of both> All of this must be explained in a clear, friendly, layperson, non-technical language (no word limit).

Finally, depending on the level of unpleasantness, it may be appropriate to use the distress protocol immediately after data collection. 4 If information is withheld, the participants will need to be debriefed after the data collection. In addition, a second informed consent to use the data should be obtained after debriefing the participants (attach the second consent form as an appendix to this document). Finally, the distress protocol should be used immediately after data collection. 5 If the participants are actively mislead or deceived, they need to be debriefed after the data collection.
