University Research on Racism in the AFL

Dear all,

I have permission from admin to make this post.

I am conducting some research on fans' views of racism in the AFL and I would really appreciate a few minutes of your time to complete an anonymous survey I have compiled: https://doit.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8qzEMac13Dw4X7E

I hope you agree it is a topical study and I thank you in advance for your time.

What are the possible disadvantages, or risks, of taking part?
"It is not anticipated that there are any risks to participation in this study beyond those encountered during everyday life. There should be no adverse events that you will suffer from participating in the project, but if you do then please contact the chief investigator"

What the hell does that mean ?

Before clicking the link I'd like to see some verification from the CSC admin staff that this is legitimate.

That's what I've asked for Lods - recommend NOT clinking the link until this has been resolved.

Can I suggest it be closed down for now?  I'm furious with this OP question as it is for a multitude of reasons

I gave it my permission as moderator. I also referred it to our great and glorious leader who gave his OK.
Live Long and Prosper!

Seems like some overreaction to this. All those people mentioned as researchers and co researchers have legit profiles at the University South Australia and other places. Unless they are that rare breed of academics who are up to no good, or unless someone has stolen their profiles (to what end I can't imagine), I'd say the chances of anything suss is pretty low.

It is a standard “informed consent” statement that appears (in similar form) in research involving volunteer participation.  In other words, the researcher’s institution covering its butt.

Yes, but “theacademic” could have avoided angst by providing some background, such as institution, research design, use of results, etc in the original post.

Probably just a kid but I have to concur, you introduce yourself with at least where you are from. I realise the researcher might not want to disclose their own identity in case it biases the result.

I only posted the 'Caution' because the OP stated he had admin OK
We just needed that confirmed and once that was done I'm comfortable .

Been posted on a few other sporting forums too under the same name, the waffle as DJ suggested is just the usual disclaimer and legally not worth anything but all academic research surveys have it.
I would want official confirmation its been sanctioned by the University/Educational insitution as a research project, some of them are private research but under the uni banner for credibility.
Its should give a link where you can check...

Where's the communication guys. Mods were told nothing about this. How are we expected to perform our roles without being informed?? Sorry, but not impressed.

PS I'm referring to whoever gave the ok for this.

Worked part time on a ad hoc basis as a tutor at a Uni for a couple years and Academics are up to no good plenty of the time.
One Academic I knew got a grant to study the breeding of crayfish, he bought himself a boat, scuba gear and a  holiday up Nth and had a few crayfish in a tank purely for looks. Of course the crayfish all died and the research paper was fit for dunny paper only. Not suggesting same will happen here with this survey but academics are very capable of manipulating the system to help themselves ..
