This three part series on peer research is based on the lessons learnt from a range of community-based research projects in Toronto, Ontario. The authors carried out focus groups with academic leads and community partners as well as individual interviews with peer researchers. The focus groups and interviews explored the processes used in peer research, the dynamics amongst the various stakeholders and the ethical, social and practical issues. The findings were incorporated into three reports:

  • Part 1: Models of practice 
  • Part 2: Management, support and supervision
  • Part 3: Ethical issues
