Added value of collaboration
The Advisory Board will provide feedback on the replicated research topics, question wording, interview schedule structure, additional methods of data collection (the use of images or video stimuli, silent brainstorming, asking people to ‘tell a story’, etc.) and the method(s) of data analysis (grounded theory method, discourse analysis, narrative analysis, and cluster analysis in NVivo). Members of the Advisory Board will work with the PI and CI to prepare findings for conferences and manuscripts for publication at high-impact factor academic journals.
