You are applying for a Non-Commercial Use License to use the BULLYING & CYBERBULLYING SCALE FOR ADOLESCENTS (BCS-A) (English).
Intervention on adolescent bullying is reliant on the valid and reliable measurement of victimisation and perpetration experiences, however existing self-report scales are restricted to uni-dimensional models or victimisation experiences only.
The measurement approach has been empirically validated and supports the measurement of four broad forms of bullying behaviour – physical, verbal, relational and cyber. The BCS-A comprises 26 items in total, including two parallel 13 item scales, one each for victimisation and perpetration.
Non-Commercial Licensees can use the BCS-A for:
- Use by individual students and faculty in conducting academic and scholarly research, academic publishing, or course preparation
- Use as required course readings or viewings
- Distribution of materials to students in a class or posting or scanning materials to a Learning Management System Website ("Learning Management System Website" means a password-protected website or other system maintained by an instructor for use by students enrolled in a particular course)
- Academic presentations or conferences (must be accompanied by reference to the Copyright Owner and with reference that use of the BCS-A is not permitted without entering into a license).
Non-Commercial Iicensees are not permitted to use the BCS-A for clinical intervention/treatment. Non-Commercial licensees also cannot publish, share, distribute, modify, sub-license or sell the BCS-A material, as they are copyright protected.
