The Research Participant Pool in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations at the University of Texas at Austin provides experiential knowledge in research methods for students enrolled in advertising and public relations courses while supporting the research of our faculty and graduate students.
Access to the pool for research purposes is reserved for faculty and graduate students in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations. The Fall 2021 pool will be open from August 30th to November 26th at 11:59pm CST.
Please fill out the Participant Pool Application Form to utilize the participant pool and be included in the list below. If you have questions about the application procedure or your study posting, please contact the Pool Administrator or Assistant. The last day to request a new study to be posted to the pool will be Friday, November 19th at 11:59pm.
Participation in the Pool for course credit is only open to students enrolled in Advertising and Public Relations courses. If you are not in participating classes in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, please do not sign up for the studies below.
If you are enrolled in participating classes (check your course syllabus or ask your professor if you are unsure), please read about each of the studies and click on the link as instructed to complete or sign up for a specific study. You can only receive credits from a study once. If you need more credits for a certain class or an additional class, you must take another, different study from the pool's list. Review your rights and responsibilities prior to sign-up or participation. If you have questions concerning any of the studies, please contact the investigator of the particular study.
The Participant Pool is now active for the Fall 2021 Semester. Studies that can be taken for course credit will be available here and will be posted as they become available.

It may take up to a week to see this document reflect your participation. You will use your confirmation number to verify participation. The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines do not allow for student names, EIDs, or other identifying information to be posted publicly in relation to research participation. Also keep in mind that it is vitally important for you to keep your own records of research participation in case of human or computer errors in distributing credit information to course instructors. Your confirmation number is important for both of these reasons. (It may take 7 - 10 days for your number to appear in the Google doc above after having completed a study.)
