A New Measure of Research Participant Burden: Brief Report

Researchers who work with human subjects should address indirect burdens related to research duration, intensity, and invasiveness. This paper introduces the concept of perceived research burden. The authors developed, tested, and validated a new instrument, the Perceived Research Burden Assessment (PeRBA) and found that it has good internal consistency and acceptable validity.
