escribe relevant features of the subjects you will be using (e.g. sex, race, or ethnic group; age range; general state of mental and physical health; etc.).

My research question is “how do psychedelics affect Social Anxiety and Personal Relations?” 30 adults from the ages of 18-30 everything else you can create on your own, whatever makes the most sense. Then based on this I will create the flyer on my own. PART II – IRB PROPOSAL – DESCRIPTION OF STUDY A. Research question. (1/2 to 1 page) Beginning on a second page, provide a brief statement of the question(s) being asked and the supporting rationale. For example: “The study is designed to determine if conformity is related to perceptions of group strength. This project is based on the social impact theory of group influence which suggests that social influence will increase as a function of perceived ‘strength’ among the group members. Perceived strength in this study is being defined by the expertise of the members.” Notice that the statement is brief and expresses not only the research question but the theoretical rationale behind the question. Some projects will undoubtedly require a bit more explanation, but a complete literature review is not necessary for IRB review purposes. B. Hypothesis(es). (1/2 page) Provide a clear statement of the research hypothesis(es) as related to the rationale and theory behind the study, For example: “Higher levels of conformity will be observed for groups that have undergone a preliminary cohesion enhancement.” Stating hypotheses in the null form is of little help to reviewers. C. Subject Selection. (1/2 page) 1. Number of subjects: 2. Human subject pool: a. Describe relevant features of the subjects you will be using (e.g. sex, race, or ethnic group; age range; general state of mental and physical health; etc.). b. Note the relevant affiliations of your subjects (e.g. institutions, hospitals, general public, etc.). 3. If human subjects are children, mentally incompetent, or other legally restricted groups: a. Explain the necessity of using these particular groups. b. Describe any special arrangements to protect their safety. D. Procedures. (1 – 3 pages) 1. Describe your recruitment procedures and any material inducements given for participation. (Attach Recruitment Flyer or Letter as Appendix A) 2. Note the location of the study. Be as specific as possible. If you are conducting the study in a school, agency, or organization. 3. Describe the information to be gathered and the means for collecting and recording data. If previously collected data is to be used, describe both the previous and proposed uses of these data. 4. Provide a step by step description of everything subjects will be asked to do in your study. 5. Note the title and source of instruments (i.e. personality scales, questionnaires, evaluation blanks, etc.). Include copies of original instruments. (Attach a sample of the instruments that you will be using to collect the data as Appendix B) 6. Describe data analysis in detail. PART III – HUMAN SUBJECTS PROTECTION A. Potential Risks you can anticipate for subjects. (1/2 – 1 page) 1. Describe immediate risks, long term risks, rationale for the necessity of such risks, alternatives that were or will be considered, and why alternatives may not be feasible. 2. Describe any potential legal, financial, social or personal effects on subjects of accidental data disclosure. Though the potential for disclosure may be extremely remote, if a fire or bombing exposed your data, how would it affect subjects? B. Expected benefits for subjects (if any) and/or society. (1/2 – 1 page) The IRB is required to insure that the potential risks to subjects (however minimal) are clearly justified by the potential benefits of the research both to the subjects and to the current state of theoretical knowledge on the topic. You can assist this process by providing a statement clarifying the potential for new knowledge resulting from the study as well as any benefits directly to the subjects. Stating that “more research is needed on this topic” will be of little help. Please explain why more research will be a benefit. C. Deception used in gathering data. (if applicable) Justify and support the use of deception in the project, particularly if subjects are being provided with any untruthful or misleading information. Realize that not providing complete information is minimally deceptive. Provide a detailed written description of the debriefing process. If no deception is being used state so. D. Safeguarding subjects’ identity. (1 page) 1. What uses will be made of the information obtained from the subjects? What elements of your project might be openly accessible to other agencies or appear in publications? 2. What precautions will be taken to safeguard identifiable records or individuals? How will confidentiality of data be protected? E. Informed consent. (1 page) 1. Please refer to Appendix C for guidelines with respect to informed consent and sample consent forms. Submit a copy of the consent form and all materials used in the recruitment and selection of subjects as Appendix C. 2. If the study involves children, the informed consent form must be signed by the child’s parent or guardian. However, the IRB usually requires that a second form be signed by the child as well, so that s/he understands as completely as possible the research which is being performed. This second form may be written in simpler language to match the age and understanding of the subjects. 3. When a signed consent form is required, a copy must be made available to the subjects. 4. In addition to creating Appendix C., in the proposal, describe the process you will use to obtain informed consent from your participants, be sure to include information regarding #2 and #3 of this section (if applicable).[order_button_a]
