Dr. Alexa Tullett’s social psychology laboratory at the University of Alabama is currently conducting a 15-minute research study on science-based communication, and you have been invited to participate. The focus of the study is to understand how journalists evaluate and report on social science research, and your input is crucial in developing best practices for communicating scientific information.
There are two compensation options available for your participation: either no compensation or a $20 gift card. If you choose the latter, you will receive an email from the University of Alabama with instructions on how to redeem the card within 3 weeks of participation.
If you know other journalists or journalism students who may be interested in participating in the study, please feel free to share this email with them. Your individual responses will remain anonymous and your privacy will be valued. The results of the study will be used to inform further research on best practices for communicating scientific information and will be reported in scientific publications and presentations.
The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and your time and insights are greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering participation in this important project.
