Participant Education Resources
Informational Videos for Participants:
OHRP has also created a series of short videos with basic information about research. These videos are intended to help potential participants understand how research works, what questions they should consider asking, and things to think about when deciding whether to participate in a study:
Participant Outreach Flyer:
The IRB has created an educational Participant Outreach Flyer to inform research participants of their rights.
We encourage researchers to hang this flyer in their research labs, include it in course syllabi, or distribute it to participants whenever possible.
Interested in participating in research?
Researchers often offer paid research opportunities through UMD's SONA System. Participants can sign up for these studies through the SONA system.
