The effects of social isolation on alcohol use
Survey title: AlCovid-19: The effects of social isolation on alcohol use.
Department: Department of Psychology
We are carrying out a study examining how people across the world are coping with social isolation during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in particular, how this is affecting alcohol consumption. Taking part would involve completing some questionnaires (~25-30 min) and then completing a short survey each week that you are isolated relating to your experience of the isolation and your alcohol consumption (~10-min/week). You can choose to either complete both parts of the study (i.e., the initial 25-30 minute survey and the weekly surveys), just the first 25-30 survey, or to not participate at all. If you are interested in taking part, and are at least 18 years old and drink alcohol (ie you are not tee-total) please click here for more information.
Volunteers must be:
Staff/Student: Staff, Students, General Public
Anyone can take part as long as they are at least 18 years old and drink alcohol (i.e., they are not tee-total). Furthermore, we have had the survey translated into several languages, so we welcome an international audience.
Dates: 6 April 2020 - 31 August 2020
Duration: The first survey will take approximately 25-30 minutes to complete. Following this, participants can choose to continue participating by completing a short survey (~10 min/week) each week during the isolation period.
Closing dates for applications: 31 August 2020
Location: Participants complete both parts of the study online, and can do so by clicking here.
