The Subject Pool in the Psychology Department at the University of Memphis is a resource
for faculty, staff, graduate, and undergraduate students alike. Faculty, staff and
graduate students have the opportunity to further the field of psychology by conducting
research with participants who are more accessible than the general public. In turn,
undergraduate students have the opportunity to learn more about the research process
first hand by participating in experiments.
The Subject Pool is dedicated to the promotion of ethical research and works closely
with the Institutional Review Board of the University of Memphis to achieve this goal.
Important guidelines and policies have been put in place to help ensure that research
is conducted ethically (and in accordance with the Ethical Code of the American Psychological
Association). All faculty, staff, and graduate students who conduct research in the
Psychology Department are obligated to follow these guidelines. At the same time,
it is important for students to understand their rights and obligations as participants
in research that is conducted in the department. The information contained in this
area of the website aims to assist faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students
to be informed users of this resource.
