Tips for Research Recruitment: The Views of Sexual Minority Youth
Lucassen, Mathijs F. G.; Fleming, Theresa M.; Merry, Sally N.
Journal of LGBT Youth, v14 n1 p16-30 2017
Researchers often experience difficulties recruiting hard-to-reach populations. This is especially so for studies involving those who have been historically stigmatized, such as individuals who challenge heteronormative expectations or people who experience mental ill health. The authors aimed to obtain the views of sexual minority adolescents (n = 25) about what encouraged their participation in a research project. The authors used a general inductive approach to analyze interview data. Feedback consisted of 2 main overarching themes: "tips and suggestions for future research" and "appreciate participants' motivation to get involved in research." Strategies for how recruitment can be optimized for studies involving sexual minority young people are discussed.
