When researchers choose to provide incentives to participants or potential participants in their research, they must follow certain regulations designed to ensure participant confidentiality and they must follow proper accounting procedures. Incentives may include Visa gift cards, retail gift cards, and non-cash gifts (such as clothing, toys, or equipment). Please read the documents below to ensure that proper procedures are followed.
