This workshop provides practical tips to get you ready for your first international fieldwork experience. We’ll start with an overview of the “pre-search” you should do before proposing a study. This will include looking for country and travel information about your destination, as well as which library services would be useful to you in the preparatory phase and when you’re abroad. Next, we’ll discuss the nuts and bolts of submitting an IRB application that involves international research and the related ethical issues. Bring your questions, sign up for an appointment with an IRB specialist, or begin working on your form. This workshop is appropriate for people in the early and intermediate phases of applying to do international fieldwork.
