For IRI assistance with field research (including surveys, focus groups, observational studies, sample provision, and consultation), complete the request form below. IRI will contact you by the next business day to help design and implement an effective field research project.
IRI offers assistance with research protocol development, including developing specific survey items that will effectively collect the required information. IRI will also help determine the optimum size of the respondent pool based on statistical need, survey efficiency, and typical response rates.
Field research that involves systematic investigation designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge, as opposed to providing data for institutional management, are human subjects research. IRI does not conduct human subjects research without prior review by the UVU Institutional Review Board. Requirements and processes for IRB approval are available through the IRB web site. IRI will provide assistance with developing human subjects research protocols as needed.
