Aim: To reach a consensus on the principles and indicators of successful user involvement in research.

Methods: An expert workshop was held with researchers and consumers and the nominal group technique used to generate possible principles and indicators. A consensus was reached on these via a two-round Delphi process.
Findings/recommendations: Eight principles were agreed and at least one indicator identified to measure each principle. There was more agreement between researchers and consumers than in previous studies. The authors hope these principles and indicators will be used by commissioners, researchers and consumers to guide good practice.
