I am writing to request your participation in my dissertation research. I am conducting a correlational study intended to examine how doctoral students respond when confronted with their peers' unethical conduct. I am collecting anonymous responses from doctoral students in American Psychological Association accredited doctoral psychology programs. The survey includes an informed consent, a demographics and program questionnaire, and questions related to experiences coping with peers' misconduct. Completion of the survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes. If you are interested in participating in this study please click on the Survey Monkey link below.
