psychological tests/scales for thesis need help

Post by psychologystudent28 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 5:13 pm

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering how do I find out if a psychological test/psychological scale is free to use or if you have to pay for it?
I will be doing my Thesis next year.

many thanks,

kind regards,

If it has a publisher or a copyright mark then it isn't free to use. If you google it and can find where to buy it, it isn't free. If none of the above apply, but it is published in a journal article and you ask the author for permission it might be free to use. Likewise if it is marked as free to use, and you can download it for free from a legit source (like the IAPT measures, for example) it is free to use.
