Mixed Methods Observations (this would include participant observation/ethnography etc) Review of documents (could include primary or secondary sources, but which might have ‘human participant’ implications)

Enter the number of participants
(Please enter a numeric value, e.g. 200. This should be the maximum number you envisage recruiting)
Where will the study take place?
If the study is to be conducted outside the researcher’s home country/place of permanent domicile, what steps are being taken to ensure that the necessary research/ethical/other permissions are secured, and that the researcher is aware of and respectful of any political and cultural sensitivities in that place?
Does this research entail more than a minimal risk of disturbance to the environment?
Environmental risk might be defined as the chance of harmful effects to human health or ecological systems resulting from exposure to physical, chemical or biological entities that can induce an adverse response. The probability/likelihood and magnitude of possible/potential harms to participants/subjects should be no greater than those encountered by them in any aspects of their everyday life which may be related to the research.
