Welcome to "The Psychology of Snacking", a web-based experiment that examines some of the decision-making properties of snacking. Before taking part in this study, please read the consent form below and click on the "I Agree" button at the bottom of the page if you understand the statements and freely consent to participate in the study.
This study involves a web-based questionnaire designed to understand how people think and feel about their favorite snacks. The study is being conducted as part of a Doctoral Research degree by Cat Taylor at the University of Sheffield, and it has been approved by the department of Psychology Ethics Committee (contact Professor Paschal Sheeran: P.Sheeran@Sheffield.ac.uk). No deception is involved, and the study involves no more than minimal risk to participants (i.e., the level of risk encountered in daily life).
Participation in the study typically takes 5 minutes and is strictly anonymous. Participants are required to answer 7 short questions about their favorite snack. All responses are treated as confidential, and in no case will responses from individual participants be identified. Rather, all data will be pooled and published in aggregate form only.
**YOU WILL NOT BE ASKED FOR PERSONAL INFORMATION SUCH AS YOUR NAME OR EMAIL ADDRESS**
You have the right to withdraw from the questionnaire at any time by selecting the link in the top right-hand corner of each page. Your data will be removed.
If you have any questions concerning this survey, the results, or your participation in this research please feel free to contact Dr Thomas Webb (T.Webb@Sheffield.ac.uk) or Cat Taylor (Cat.Taylor@Sheffield.ac.uk).
