Market Smells II Participant Results

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Market Smells II study. We had a delay in posting the summary scores because we conducted a second day of testing on 4 August. We are currently analyzing the data and writing the paper. We hope to have a draft available as a preprint by mid- to late September. So, stay tuned!

These data are shared in advance of project analysis and publication for the SOLE purpose of providing participants their olfactory ability scores from the day of testing. These data are copyrighted under the following license: CC BY-NC-ND (Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives) which overrides the CC-BY 4.0 license listed on this page. This license is restrictive and only permits downloading the data and sharing it with others as long the authors are credited. The data cannot be changed in any way or used commercially.

These scores are not diagnostic. If any participant is worried about his/her sense of smell, please follow-up with a medical doctor for further testing. If you have lost your sense of smell or have a reduced capacity for smelling (or are generally worried), there is a UK-based charity for people affected by smell and taste disorders: Fifth Sense is the first charity in the UK supporting smell and taste disorder sufferers, providing a signpost to potential diagnosis and treatment, and playing a leading role in educating society on the huge role that the sense of smell plays in our lives. Fifth Sense is recognised as a charity for tax purposes by HMRC and our HMRC Charities Reference Number is EW14336.
