College Student Intentions to Participate in Internet-Based Health Research
Reece, Michael; Smith, Matthew Lee; Jun, Mi Kyung
Health Educator, v38 n2 p61-69 Fall 2006
To explore factors associated with college students' intentions to participate in Internet-based health research, data were collected from 502 undergraduate students enrolled in introductory-level business courses at a large midwestern university. Findings suggest that intentions to participate in Internet-based research are influenced by one's perceptions of social norms related to research participation and the extent to which one regularly discusses personal health information with others. Researchers planning to use the Internet for conducting health research and needs assessments among college populations may find study recruitment strategies focusing on social norms to be effective.
