RESEARCH INFORMATION SHEET
Marketing and Media Representations of Fatherhood
Jessica Huerta, M.A., is the Principal Investigator and Dr. Abigail Saguy is the Faculty Sponsor, from the Sociology Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. Jess and her research assistant Alexis Garfinkel are conducting a research study. This study is being funded by The Pat Tillman Foundation. You were selected as a possible participant in this study because you are an English speaking adult that may have opinions about fatherhood. Your participation in this research study is voluntary.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT A RESEARCH STUDY?
· Someone will explain this research study to you.
· Whether or not you take part is up to you.
· You can choose not to take part.
· You can agree to take part and later change your mind.
· Your decision will not be held against you.
· You can ask all the questions you want before you decide.
WHY IS THIS RESEARCH BEING DONE?
To understand contemporary ideas about fatherhood dynamics regarding gender, race, class, and occupations.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESEARCH LAST AND WHAT WILL I NEED TO DO?
Participation will take a total of about 30 minutes. When appropriate, the study may involve a follow-up for requests for individual videos accomplished via zoom.
IF YOU AGREE TO PARTICIPATE, THE RESEARCHER MAY ASK YOU TO DO THE FOLLOWING:
· Attend presentation in-person or virtually
· Register for Poll Everywhere via cell phone or laptop
· Answer questions about dads in the news, new products, and fatherhood dynamics
· Discuss with a group
· Consent to video and audio recording
ARE THERE ANY RISKS IF I PARTICIPATE?
· There is no risk in the 1 on 1 interview.
· In the focus group, the risk is having “important others” disagree with you during this discussion
ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS IF I PARTICIPATE?
You may benefit from the study by learning about new gear and social dynamics for dads.
The results of the research will be included in my dissertation and published in the dissertation database of UCLA. It could also be published as a book in the future. You would be contributing to how dads are perceived in this generation and the next.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE IF I DON'T AGREE TO PARTICIPATE?
You can leave the session and not register in my poll everywhere activities or website. I can delete your registration and data.
HOW WILL INFORMATION ABOUT ME AND MY PARTICIPATION BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL?
First, you do not need to enter your entire name in the registration for Poll Everywhere or Zoom. Second, I ask participants to write their ticket number in the demographic form. Data and analysis will use that ticket number as an identifier, as names associated from the consent-registration will be not be matched. Study data will be physically and electronically secured. As with any use of electronic means to store data, there is a risk of breach of data security but your personal information will not be part of that data.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT CAN IDENTIFY YOU:
The only way you can be identified would be the registration on Wix & PollEverywhere and if fellow participants refer to you by name. Your consent-registration will not be matched with your session(s) data.
HOW INFORMATION WILL BE STORED:
This will be stored in my laptop, Google Drive, Zoom cloud, and when in person - the Quik app for GoPro.

Research records provided to authorized, non-UCLA personnel will not contain identifiable information about you. Upon request from fellow social scientists, my data may be accessed for scientific auditing but will not include any personal identifying information.
