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:
All experimenters who use the SSEL Lab, SSEL laptops off-campus, Online studies via SSEL, or subjects recruited through SSEL must first apply to use the SSEL Services. Once approved, they 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask to be added to the SSEL protocol.
All experimenters who use the SSEL Lab, SSEL equipment off-campus, or SSEL subjects for a lab experiment elsewhere on campus must first apply to use the lab.
All experimenters who want to run an online experiment using the SSEL Online Protocol must first apply to run an online study.
Note that if you are an undergraduate or graduate student, an email will be sent to your adviser to confirm that they have your approval to conduct this project. If you have not discussed the proposal with your thesis adviser and have not yet received approval to apply to use lab services, then you should not submit an application until you have approval.
If you have any trouble with the application process, please contact email@example.com.
The laboratory has 20 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.
Experimentalists who use SSEL lab using the SSEL protocol must use the IRB approved SSEL Consent Form and SSEL receipt. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request for the forms. They must then submit the signed forms to the Finance department for reconciliation of their funds.
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.
