Attitudes Toward Qualitative And Mixed Methods Research In Psychology

Participant Information Sheet

Hello. My name is Dr Lynne Roberts and I am a Senior Lecturer from the School of Psychology and Speech Pathology at Curtin University. I am conducting research to develop a measure of attitudes toward qualitative and mixed methods research.

If you are a psychology student, psychologist or psychology academic, I would like to invite you to take part in this research. This would involve completing a short online questionnaire that will ask questions about your attitudes to qualitative and mixed methods research. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Although participation in this research will not benefit you directly, the information you provide will help in the development of a measure of attitudes toward qualitative and mixed methods research. The results obtained from this study may be reported in future academic publications and conferences.

Your participation is completely voluntary and you will be able to withdraw at any time prior to submitting your survey. To ensure anonymity, you will not be asked to provide any identifying information. If you choose to complete and submit your questionnaire, I will assume that you have provided consent for me to use your data in this research. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a draw for a US$100 gift voucher.

Your data will be kept strictly confidential with only myself and other research staff working on the project having access to it. Data will be stored on password-protected computers and in a secure cabinet at Curtin University for five years, at which point it will be disposed of in an ethical manner.

If you have any questions before, during or after the interview, please contact me by email:
