Want to collect your own new data for a research project? Below are some resources you might find helpful.
Collect your own data using Qualtrics, a survey construction and data collection/evaluation tool that is available to the GSU community.
If you're going to be doing research that involves interaction with human subjects - regardless of whether it's quantitative or qualitative - you will likely need to complete an IRB (Institutional Review Board) application detailing the processes you will take to protect the study participants. Below are some key sites on the GSU IRB Office's page.
To view or submit protocols in iRIS, users must be associated with a Department/School. If you do not see a “Study Assistant” tab, please email the IRB staff at email@example.com and include the name of your Department/School so your profile can be updated.
The IRB staff has compiled a list of tips highlighting some of the commonly-issued “stipulations” (or corrections) that applicants are asked to address in iRIS applications. Please CLICK HERE to review the tips to help you draft a complete application and minimize review timelines.
Below are tools and tips for finding existing survey instruments and measurement scales to use in your own research.
Another good way to identify survey instruments/measurement scales for your own research is to read the published empirical research on your topic and see what those researchers used--you might then be able to find that survey instrument/measurement scale in the resources below or contact the researcher(s) to see if they'll share it with you.
