Get On the Bus!

Need quick turnaround for a few standard format questions for mass audience? “Omnibus”-style services:  very handy at times. Several available, however, this is one I’ve dealt with longest (going waaaaay back)

Standards!

As all my students know, I view the MRIA site as essential for any practitioner and a fine source of updates on guidelines and of course the 10 Core Principles

http://mria-arim.ca/

I recommend the CORE-TCPS tutorial to ensure students and practitioners of research recognize the gravity of their role- it outlines several unfortunate real cases that show why professionals tend to urge ‘less rushed, more careful’ research implementation. It’s our own version of ‘Do No Harm’ – keep clients from harm AND research subjects (respondents/participants) from any and all risk of possible harm- eg financial, career, reputation, emotional or physical.
