Is this right livelihood?

Would participating in a research study and receiving a compensation fall within right livelihood?

Are you hurting anyone or any thing by doing it?
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

I do not have the intention to hurt anyone by participating in any studies.

Would participation in psychology studies fall within "business in human beings"? Or is this referring to something more like prostitution, slavery, etc?

Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta
