New study to explore the effects of social distancing

International Edu News

Researchers at the University of Oxford are looking for volunteers from across the globe to take part in a new study looking into how social distancing has affected their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. Volunteers can complete the online survey, which will track people's feelings and experiences over a 3-month period. 

The study is being conducted by an international group of researchers led by Dr. Bahar Tuncgenc, from the University of Nottingham's School of Psychology and the Social Body Lab at the University of Oxford. 'Keeping distance from our loved ones, especially in such uncertain and threatening times, is an unusual and at times difficult way to be asked to live. We want to find out how these distancing measures have been affecting people's daily lives and what they may have been doing to help get through it,' says Dr. Tuncgenc.

The study aims to understand what motivates people to adhere to the practice of distancing and how it affects people's social interactions and mood. The researchers are targeting a wide range of countries including Australia, Bangladesh, China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Lebanon, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, and USA.
