Apply to use the lab for your experimental research.
The Social Science Experimental Lab, lab equipment, and subject pool are available for use on request by NYU and NYUAD faculty, students, and visiting faculty. Experiments conducted at the SSEL Lab, using SSEL laptops off-campus, or using the SSEL subject pool for other experiments must satisfy the following protocol:
The laboratory has 14 laptops that can be taken outside of NYUAD in order to conduct research. However, if the experiment is to be conducted on the NYUAD campus or within reasonable commuting distance of NYUAD, unless there is a significant reason why subjects cannot come to the laboratory or would be reluctant to do so, the experiment must be conducted in the laboratory. Laptops can only be checked out by researchers who sign release forms taking responsibility for any missing equipment.
All experimenters who use the SSEL Lab, SSEL laptops off-campus, or subjects recruited through SSEL must complete certification by the CITI program. Please complete the tutorial for the course for social and behavioral sciences. Once certified, please print a pdf version of the certification and email it to Arusyak Hakhnazaryan, SSEL Lab Technical and Operational Manager, and ask to be added as a PI for SSEL. If your experiment satisfies the SSEL protocol, then the SSEL human subjects approval will apply to the experiment and there is no need for securing additional human subjects approval.
Experimentalists who use SSEL lab using the SSEL protocol must use the IRB approved SSEL Consent Form and SSEL receipt. Submit the signed forms to the Finance department.
Any research and/or teaching conducted using laboratory facilities in any way must be acknowledged and cited as such. A suggested citation format is:
This research was conducted at the Social Science Experimental Laboratory at New York University in Abu Dhabi in MONTH(S)/YEAR.
If you have any research or teaching needs that you think qualify as special requests please discuss these with Rebecca Morton. While some requests can be accommodated, depending on circumstance others may not be, so we apologize in advance.
