Since the press coverage of our app last week, I’ve received a huge number of enquiries from parents, teachers and other people who are close to children with autism.
Another new experience for me this week – composing a press release in advance of the publication of our app on the Apple Store tomorrow (11th January 2012).
The post you’ve all been waiting for with baited breath – the why’s and wherefore’s of the Research Ethics approval process! But seriously, this is a big issue for researchers, participants in research and the general public.
8th December 2011, 1.29pm: I had intended to make this blog about the process of getting ethical approval for a research study: hard work and poorly understood by anyone who hasn’t done it, including me until last year!
25th November 2011, 9.47am: My first proper blog post. The issue that’s really exercising the team right now is about Intellectual Property rights, licensing and so forth. The big question is how we ensure a life for the CLICK-EAST game after the current research grant runs out.
This is an experiment for me! I’m running the CLICK-EAST study and I’m going to try keeping a blog from now until the end of the study in July 2013.
