Default Posting request - is it ok if I do this?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi

I wanted to post something, but I wanted to check that it was allowed before I did so. I'm a member of a couple of forums and I know that every one has formal and informal rules, and I don't want to do anything that would crash the party as it were!

I'm doing a research project on people's work patterns, particularly with reference to how they use their smartphones. (It's the old 'BB means you never stop work' idea, and testing how true that might be). It's for a Masters dissertation - it's a degree thing, completely non-commercial. I'd really like to get some input from forum members, so I wondered if it would be ok if I posted a link to the survey? It's online and completely anonymous, and would take about 10 minutes to complete.

I can also give you the link where the results will be published in September after the project is finished.

Would this be ok to do?

We've had several people post different surveys here for that type of thing, so post away!

I'd recommend posting it in the General forums.

Wirelessly posted (Lets Go Canes!)

Did you have to go through your school's IRB?

sorry - IRB? I'm not in the US, so the term may be different, but a quick google suggests 'Institutional Review Board', which I'd know as the Ethics committee.

So - yep. Whole proposal, survey and consent forms have to be passed by the committee before I'm allowed to use them. All i's dotted and t's crossed etc etc etc.
