Online survey (Chance to win £100/$166)

Postby PhD_Researcher » Fri May 23, 2014 12:03 pm

Hi all! I am a doctoral research student and I'm doing a study on post-traumatic stress and social group membership. I'd be very grateful if you could complete this survey by following this link:


The survey should take about 10-15 minutes. Anyone who has gone through a trauma is eligible to participate -- you don't have to have post-traumatic stress disorder. Everyone who completes the survey now and in a year's time (we will email you again to remind you) will be entered into a draw to win one of 2 x £100 ($166) prizes.

Thanks for considering this request, and please let me know if you have any questions about the study or about me!

I was going to do the survey... until I clicked on the link, and a page of legalese jumped on me.
The survey would take 14-20 minutes, the werbung said... but to read through the legalese and comprehend it would take another half hour.

Aside from that, the legalese text probably talked about common sense things.

I am good with common sense.

And I don't sign "I've read" when I haven't.

I decided the return of pleasure to do the survey was not attractive enough to chew through the boring and completely unnecessary legalese of the preamble.

I suggest to the organizer to either substantially reduce the size (word count and complexity) of the preamble, or do away with it altogether. You are scaring away would-be participants.

Of course you get all the willing participants who are willing to lie and say they've read the preamble, while they haven't.
