New study: Internet administration of the Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DOCS)

The DOCS is a self-report questionnaire designed to address the current limitations of existing obsessive-compulsive symptom measures. A new study from our lab published in the Journal of Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders give initial support that the DOCS, when administered via the Internet, exhibit adequate psychometric properties. Using the Internet to administer the DOCS can have many potiential benefits. For example, it can make data collection easier when studying the prevalence of OC symptoms in the general population.
