  • Screeners. Screeners are brief questionnaires with which recruiters check if a candidate is eligible or not for a study. These usually contain questions about the person’s condition.
  • Sociodemographic forms. These are short forms with general questions for the participant, like age, sex, ethnographic background, etc.
  • Consent forms. These are the documents participants have to sign before taking part in a study, which normally contain a brief description of the study, and information about the interviews and rights of the participant.
  • Interview guides. These are the documents moderators use in qualitative study interviews, which contain all the questions they have to ask participants, and instructions on how the interview must be conducted.
  • Surveys. These are the quantitative alternative to interview guides. In this case, there’s not moderator as participants will personally answer to the questions either electronically or on paper. The instructions and questions must be very clear for participants here, as there will be no moderator to explain or answer any doubts.
  • We normally work with audio files from interviews in French, and we produce intelligent and verbatim transcription directly into English. These are mainly about the experience of the participant with the study condition.
