Informed Consent Question Carol Brodie 07 Nov 2001 14:23 EST

Here's a question for those of you involved in Human Subjects protections.  -   Do any of you have experience with, or policies on, obtaining informed consent from survey participants when the survey is done online?

We have a study being proposed in which the researcher has a statement at the beginning of the online (e-mail) survey that their participation indicates their consent.  Generally, with *some* hard copy surveys, that can be sufficient.  However, online.........I'm not sure.

Thoughts?  Experiences?  Policies?

Thanks for any help that you can provide,
