Ethical Consideration
An informed consent stipulating the intention of the tool was attached to the questionnaire.
It expressed the voluntary nature of the respondents’ participation. The cellphone number of one
of the researchers was given in the consent form, to enable the research participants to ask
questions or clarifications. The participants may also quit participating as a respondent, and inform
the researchers through a text message, a call, or any platform for appropriate information.
Respondents’ names were not revealed to observe total confidentiality. Instead, codes were
assigned to them like R1, R2 for Respondent 1 and 2, and so on. All sources used are properly
attributed and cited, where used, in the text to avoid plagiarism. Neither coercion nor bribery to
participate was done.
