Your Rights as a Research Participant

  • You can be sure that every study has been approved by our Institutional Review Board (IRB).
  • You have the right to an explanation (this includes your right to ask questions!) of any study before you agree to participate in it, and the right to chose not to participate at all.
  • In addition, everything that you say or do during a research project is strictly confidential.
  • If, for some reason, you suddenly decide that you would rather not participate in a research project after all, then just tell the researcher and they will allow you to leave. You cannot be penalized in any way for leaving a research session once it has begun.  Your comments will be kept strictly confidential.
