Will I get paid to participate in research?

Some research programs offer money to participants, but others do not. When a researcher calls you to explain the purpose of the study they will also outline the time commitment and compensation costs. As always, it is your choice whether to participate.

In addition to monetary compensation, other forms of compensation may include physical and developmental evaluation. Additionally, many find that participating in research is interesting as it gives insight, and provides a sense of satisfaction for having contributed to important advances in scientific knowledge.
