BSSR Clinical Trials

The Protocol Template for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research is a resource for communicating the science, methods, and operations of a clinical trial. This template is a suggested format for clinical trials that are testing a behavioral or social intervention or experimental manipulation. Use of the protocol template is encouraged but not required.
