Participants Needed for Online Study of Long-Distance Relationships


Social Media Links

The Du Bois Health Behavior Lab, run by Assistant Professor Steve Du Bois in the Department of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology, seeks research volunteers: adult couples (age 18+) in long-distance relationship arrangements. Each member of a participating couple will take an online survey (20-30 minutes) about their relationship experiences and well-being; they will then complete a similar survey six months later. Both members of a couple must agree to participate in order to join the study.

Participants will be compensated via online gift card credit for completing study activities; a bonus is available to couples in which both individuals complete these activities within one week of each other. If you decide to participate, your identifying information (e.g., name, e-mail address) will be password-protected and stored separately from survey responses to maintain your confidentiality. Participation is completely voluntary.
