Advertise for research subjects on the website – how to do it

Denna sida på svenska

On the site Research on the external website there is a page where researchers at Karolinska Institutet can advertise for research subjects/trial subjects. Here are some instructions to researchers and web editors.

On the advertising page, there is information for people who wish to become research subjects – both in general terms of what is involved in being a research subject/trial subject and what studies you can notify your interest in. It is the main web-editor at each department who manages the advertising.

Instructions for researchers

As a KI researcher, you can search for prospective research subjects/trial subjects by advertising on the external website. The main web-editor at your department is responsible for the publication and removal of the advertisement.

What to do

  • Fill in the form with your advertising information; write briefly and do not forget to fill in when your advert is to be removed.
  • Select the department you belong to from the list, and submit the form.

Some tips

  • In order to more easily process expressions of interest to your study, you can use KI Survey via a link in your advertisement.
  • Try using social media to share the link to your ad on the KI website. But please, check out the KI guidelines for social media at work before you start. 
  • Always use email addresses with a KI domain when advertising externally. It is both safer than for example Gmail, and it makes the advert more trustworthy. If you do not want to use a personal e-mail address, you can apply for a separate function-address (shared mailbox) from the IT Office at KI, without extra cost.
