To wrap up the Year of Community Research, I’m providing a download of the much-requested research agreement template. This free download in Microsoft Word is designed to help you think through your research partnership and clarify expectations for you and your community/organizational partner.
Watch the video to learn how the template was developed and hear my four tips on how to use the template:
- Consider process and roles for you and your partner
- Anticipate road blocks
- Protect your data and ownership
- Proactively communicate with your partner
Thank you to the researchers who provided input and material in developing this resource, especially Dr. Joann Keyton, professor of Communication at NC State University!
