Document and record public involvement in your research

Think how you are going to track the public involvement throughout your research so you can report and reflect on it as your project develops. Research funding organisations will also be increasingly asking you to report on the impact of your research. Plan to include a record of how members of the public have been involved throughout the study as well as what difference it has made to the research.

For an example of documenting and recording impact in your research see:
