Research and Survey Requests

Georgia Psychological Association Survey Policy for Non-Association Purposes

Research requests can be distributed to membership through the e-newsletter if the research request is considered a direct benefit to the profession of psychology.

Submission of research requests to the GPA e-newsletter will go directly to the chair(s) of GPA’s Academic Affairs Committee. Upon review of the request, the Academic Affairs committee will send an email to the contact person of the request informing them of the acceptance or denial of the survey distribution.

GPA will use the following guidelines in determining whether to distribute the research request to GPA members:

  • The person conducting the research and the research adviser must both be current members of GPA (or their respective state, provincial, or territorial association)
  • The member conducting the research must send proof of Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval
  • The name and contact information for the research adviser must be provided with submission
  • A copy of the research tools must be provided to GPA with submission

If approved by GPA’s Academic Affairs Committee, the request will be distributed on the e-newsletter, which is distributed every first and third Wednesday. The research requests must be approved prior to one week of the e-newsletter’s publication date.


GPA’s Policy on Research Distribution on Listservs:

In accordance with the APA Social Media/Forum Policy, it is the policy of the Georgia Psychological Association (GPA) to refuse to grant access to its membership via its listservs. Public social networks carry risks and disadvantages for conducting research. 

Those who inquire will also be advised of the APA’s Policy on Social Media which advocates the use of extreme caution in any endorsement of or forwarding of requests for research participation through any APA-approved Forum (listserv).
