Research Exchange, v7 n1-3 2002
These three issues of the "Research Exchange" focus on how better to conduct disability research and disseminate research results. The first issue examines the topic of human subject/human research participant protection, with a focus on research funded through the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). It provides answers to questions concerning U.S. Department of Education requirements for human subject/human research participant protection, information on Institutional Review Boards that review research activities to protect the rights and welfare of human subjects, information on the Association for Accreditation of Human Research Participant Protection Programs, and organizational policy statements on protecting participants in research. Resources on human research participant protection are provided. The second journal issue discusses how NIDRR grantees can increase access to disability research information in rural communities. Outreach strategies of the Research and Training Center on Rural Rehabilitation Services are described, and experiences from the lower Mississippi Delta states are discussed. Related resources on rural issues are listed. The final issue highlights examples of how several NIDRR grantees have worked with the media to disseminate disability research. Tips are provided for working with the press and resources are provided for developing virtual press rooms and press kits. Some articles include references. (CR)
