Author information

School of Nursing, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 27599-7460, USA.


Public schools are enticing yet intimidating places to conduct research on children and adolescents.

This article presents practical and proven approaches to obtaining access to and approval from schools or school systems, as well as parental consent, to conduct school-based research.
