With the support of the ESRC, Young Lives is undertaking a new project to facilitate and catalyze methodological learning and lessons generated over 15 years of policy-focused longitudinal observational research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Our aim is to generate new insights that will help us shape a learning resource that meets the needs of a growing community of practice involved in longitudinal studies in LMICs.
Our work is divided into four key areas of challenge and opportunity related to longitudinal research:
1. Research design and methodology
2. Research governance and scientific, policy and public impact
3. Data management and archiving
4. Research ethics
We invite you, as a researcher or practitioner engaged or interested in similar forms of research, to participate in this project by offering your own views, experiences and insights. Your input will help us define priorities, identify challenges, and share resources for a new digital library of references, case studies and advice that will support best practice in longitudinal research.
It should only take about 5 minutes to complete the survey. Thank you in advance for your participation.
