Abstract
An online experiment was conducted to compare the efficacy of two interventions to increase self-reported willingness to eat insects and insect-related foods. The experiment was designed and carried out as an undergraduate thesis on the BA Hons in Psychology programme here at DBS. We describe the research and results, as well as the process leading to its publication in the open access journal Studies in Arts and Humanities, with the hope of opening a discussion on collaborative student-staff publication.
