You are invited to take part in a research study. Before you decide to be a part of this study, you need to understand the risks and benefits. Your decision to take part in the study is voluntary. Your participation or non-participation should not affect your work status. You are free to choose whether or not you will take part in the study.

As a student in the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering of The George Washington University, I am carrying out a research study to find out how countermeasures may or may not be effective against information overload. My name is Marvin Rosenberg and I am the investigator (person in charge of this research study) and researcher. The research will be conducted using an anonymous questionnaire that will be located at a Web site identified in an email invitation. Answering the anonymous questionnaire will take about 20-25 minutes. The data from the answered questionnaires will be transferred from the central questionnaire Web site and stored on the researcher’s personal computer for analysis purposes.

To the best of our knowledge, the things you will be doing have no more risk of harm than you would experience in everyday life. Although we have made every effort to minimize this, you may find some questions we ask you to be upsetting or stressful. In addition, you will not get any personal benefit from taking part in this study. There are no costs associated with taking part in this study. You will not receive compensation for participating in this study.

Your participation in this research study is voluntary. You may decide not to begin or to stop this study at any time. If you have questions about the procedures of this research study, please contact Marvin Rosenberg by telephoning (410)336-5395 during the workday. If you have questions about the informed consent process or your rights as a research subject, please contact the Assistant Vice President for Health Research, Compliance and Technology Transfer at (202)994-2995.

Your research records may be provided to the United States Department of Health and Human services, and/or authorized representatives of the George Washington University Office of Human Research and/or Committee on Human Research. Except for these entities, research records will be kept confidential unless you authorize their release, or the records are required by law (i.e., court subpoena). You will not be identified by name in any reports or publications of this study.
