- Research Proposals
Researchers may submit items to be included on KAMOS. Proposals may be emailed as Microsoft Word attachments (.doc files) or PDF files to KAMOSContact@gmail.com.
Research proposals may be written in English or Korean and should include the following information:
- a. The name, affiliation, and contact information of the primary researcher and any other team members
- b. Background information about the proposed project. This could include, for example, a brief literature review or an explanation of the importance of the topic.
- c. The exact question(s) to be included in the survey. KAMOS is conducted in Korean. Researchers who do not speak Korean may propose questions in English with the understanding that their question will be translated into Korean. We may need to consult with the researcher to confirm the translation in some cases (e.g., if a word has multiple meanings).
- d. Please disclose any funding sources, conflicts of interest, etc.
- e. Any other information we need to know. E.g., Is it important that this item be included at a certain time of year?
We ask that all researchers who use our data send us a copy of any papers they publish using the KAMOS data and the publication information for inclusion on our list of publications. KAMOS should be acknowledged in any paper that uses the KAMOS data.
What we are looking for: We will generally prioritize survey items with the highest potential for interesting research papers. Therefore, research proposals should emphasize the importance of the topic and explain how the survey item(s) will be used.
We are also looking for unique questions, i.e., survey items that are not similar to ones asked on other surveys in Korea.
CAPORCI supports international collaboration. Projects that will result in cross-country comparisons or other kinds of international cooperation may receive additional consideration.
It is important to note that only a limited number of items can be accepted. Researchers are encouraged to ask the minimum number of questions needed for their projects. Multiple choice questions, Likert-style questions, etc. are more likely to be accepted than open-ended questions.
