Participant Information Sheet Template for a questionnaire or online survey
If collecting identifiable personal information:
Anonymised Questionnaires (not collecting identifiable personal information about a research participant):
Remember depending on your research, you may need to consider using a number of different forms or adapted version of the forms as follows:
Agreement form for Adults
Agreement form for parent/guardians
Assent form (for young people who are agreeing to take part (under 16)). When involving children with a wide age range, it might be appropriate to provide separate PI Sheets for the different age groups. Always tailor your PI Sheet to the participant.
Research activities such as data collection should not commence before the online ethics checklist (including participant information/agreement forms if relevant) has been approved.
