This page contains several resources, including information about the process of ethical compliance for focus group research and copies of original documents used during the 2010 QES Britain research project.
Ethics and Study information
Qualitative research requires a higher level of ethical consideration and privacy protections than survey research. I have attached my plan for ethical compliance as an example of the considerations relevant at the time this research was conducted. I also provide the original documents given to the participants describing the research itself and the consent form they reviewed and signed before participating.
