The Barriers in Alcohol Research Study (BARS) is a survey of researchers who study the effect of alcohol intoxication on human behavior, including emotions, thoughts, physiology, and behavior. Alcohol administration study methods are diverse, with researchers using many different methods of administration and detoxification. While such methods have been used across many institutes within the United States, Canada, and countries within Europe, little is known about how researchers manage the demands associated with methods of alcohol administration with human subjects. Far less is known about how researches launched such programs at their respective institutions, as well as the institution-level procedures and barriers that may change the method of alcohol administration. The current study seeks to examine the different methods utilized in alcohol administration studies, identify the barriers researchers have experienced, and discuss ways to navigate these barriers to conduct rigorous, ethical research that complies with institutional requirements. The goal will be to disseminate this information in a peer-reviewed publication and presentations to other researchers who may wish to use this method.
Individuals may participate in BARS if they:
1) currently or formerly conducted research in an academic institute;
2) have conducted alcohol administration studies or senior administrators in the laboratory who can comment knowledgeably about their alcohol administration methods and procedures; and
3) are fluent in written English.
The Barriers in Alcohol Research Study was approved by the University Human Subjects Review Committee at Eastern Michigan University (UHSRC-FY22-23-30). Please contact Dr. Neilson at email@example.com for questions.

The Subject Input and Planning (SIP) study is seeking male social drinkers for a study on alcohol use and sexual health. The study includes participating in either an interview or focus group for approximately 1 hour, followed by several surveys. The goal is to gain new information about what men may find relevant to their experiences and priorities regarding alcohol and sexual health. Participants will earn $25 for their time.
The SIP study was approved by the University Human Subjects Review Committee at Eastern Michigan University (UHSRC-FY22-23-65). Please contact Dr. Neilson at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
