Research Participant Recruitment

NJABA members who wish to use our membership list to solicit research participants should complete all required information on the form linked below.  Further information about the study (e.g., IRB approval, survey instruments, research protocol) may be requested by NJABA’s research committee prior to approval. Research must be relevant to our membership (e.g., ABA focused). There is a $25 charge for this service — you will be invoiced upon approval.

To be eligible for this service, the primary investigator (PI) must be a current full or affiliate member of NJABA. If a graduate or undergraduate student is serving as the PI, their supervisor (e.g., thesis or dissertation chair) must join NJABA and function as the PI for this research posting.

If the student researcher is enrolled in a New Jersey-based ABA program or is an RBT they may join for free.
