HumRROs Meredith P. Crawford Fellowship in I-O Psychology

Since 1951, the Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) has applied science and technology to enhance human performance and organizational effectiveness. Toward this end, we have drawn on time-tested principles about human behavior and new scientific and technologically advanced tools and concepts. HumRRO conducts these activities with the aim of finding practical solutions to real-world problems.

HumRRO looks for ways to give back to the personnel research community that has supported our success over the years. One program that HumRRO sponsors is an annual fellowship to reward, recognize, and support an outstanding graduate student with high potential for significant contributions to research in the field of industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology. I-O graduate students or students in fields congruent with the objectives of SIOP are eligible. The recipient will receive an award of $10,000.

StudyResponse: Internet Research Opportunity

Research via the Internet has the potential to be a great way of collecting data from a diverse group of respondents quickly and inexpensively. However, concerns about netiquette violations, privacy violations, non-response bias, and sample representativeness have reduced the Internets utility as a research medium. To address some of these concerns, we have been working on developing a database of individuals who are willing to participate in online research (www.StudyResponse.com). The database has a diverse makeup in terms of age, educational level, gender, and other demographic variables of interest.

We are happy to make the panel available to researchers who are doing or would like to do Internet-based research. StudyResponse supports scientific research only and does not make its list available for product evaluations or other endeavors aimed at selling a product or service. We are nonprofit, and the panel is available at no cost to researchers. The service may be particularly useful for masters or doctoral research. Interested researchers are encouraged to visit the StudyResponse.com Web site and click on the link for researchers to learn more about the make-up of the panel, results of past studies, and how the process works. If youd like more information, dont hesitate to contact us at gte545r@prism.gatech.edu or jmstanto@syr.edu.
