We are a group of over 120 researchers from more than 30 countries. The lead researchers are Professors Kim Lavoie, PhD and Simon Bacon, PhD, co-directors of the Montreal Behavioural Medicine Centre (MBMC) in Montreal, Canada.
We want to understand people’s awareness, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours about COVID-19, which is also known as coronavirus or novel coronavirus, throughout the world. To do this we are asking people from different countries to complete this survey. We also want to have a variety of different views, so anyone can complete the survey, no matter what your age, sex, or background is.
The survey will require about 20 minutes to complete. Please make sure you give yourself enough time, as you cannot save the survey and come back to it later.
We will not be collecting any information that we can use to identify you, so your responses remain completely anonymous. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time and you can choose not to answer any specific questions. There are no risks associated with your participation to this study.
All data will be securely collected on a University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada) server that hosts our data collection software for 10 years.
Respecting international data sharing agreements supported by the Fonds de la recherche du Québec (FRQ), the data from this study will be made available to study collaborators. All copies of the study data will be stored on secure, password protected servers that can only be accessed by authorized individuals.
The main results from this study will be posted on the main study website (www.mbmc-cmcm.ca/covid19), where everyone will be able to access them.
If you have any questions about the study please contact us through our project email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
