As an anonymous questionnaire is being used to collect data for this research, the information you provide will not be linked to you personally. However, if you are a first year psychology student at UNE and would like participation in this study to count towards your research participation requirements, you will be asked to provide your name and student number - this identifying information will not be linked to your questionnaire data.
Participation is Voluntary
Please understand that your involvement in this study is voluntary and we respect your right to stop participating in the study at any time without consequence and without needing to provide an explanation. However, once you begin the survey your data cannot be withdrawn.
Use of Information
We will analyse data gathered through the questionnaire, and the results will be disseminated through student theses, academic journal articles, and conference presentations. Additionally, data from this study will be collated with similar data sets collected by Dr Temple's research collaborators in other countries (e.g., USA, UK) for further analysis, thus, contributing to large-scale, international research projects.
Storage of Information
Data will be stored on password protected computers at the University of New England’s School of Psychology and cloud.une. Access will be limited to the purposes described above.
Disposal of Information
All data collected in this research will be kept for a minimum of five years, after which it will be disposed of by deleting relevant computer files.
