Research:Women and Wikipedia/Verbal consent
Hello, my name is Amanda, and I’m a PhD student at the University of Washington's Information School. Today, I’d like to ask you some questions about Wikipedia. I'm interested in what motivates women to participate in Wikipedia. I will be asking you about your personal experiences editing Wikipedia and interacting with the community.
What you share with me today is confidential, only to be used between me and my fellow researcher for the purposes of learning more about women and Wikipedia. The information we collect from you may be shared in academic articles, conferences, or similar venues. However, this information will be reported in the aggregate and no information that could identify you, personally, will be shared. I will be audio recording this session, and once I transcribe the session, I will immediately destroy the audio file. Is that okay with you?
