Join Our Science Communication Study: A Fifteen-Minute Session for Participants


Nov 20, 2023

As a journalist, you have been invited to participate in a 15-minute research study on science-based communication. The purpose of the study is to understand how journalists evaluate and report on social science research. Your input is essential in developing best practices for communicating scientific information.

The study offers two compensation options: 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, typically within 3 weeks of participation.

If you know other journalists or journalism students who may be interested in participating in the study, please share this email with them.

The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 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.

This project is being conducted by Dr. Alexa Tullett’s social psychology laboratory at the University of Alabama, with support from the National Science Foundation. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and insights.
