We need to be aware that research, if conducted without care and consideration, can have potentially harmful effects for those taking part. Researchers must consider the rights of the individual who may be giving data and they also need to ensure that all those taking part in the research and the information they provide are treated in a sensitive manner. All data need to remain confidential and the respondents need to be assured, as far as possible, that their anonynymity will be maintained unless agreed otherwise.
These form the content of the following chapters of this book. Alongside this practical planning of the research process within their university, the researchers will be aware of the need to draw on wider experiences. Other universities are likely to have tackled the problem of transition of students to university and it would help to know if they carried out their own research and if so how they did it and what they found. It would also help to know what national and even international research has been done, what conclusions had been drawn, what strategies had been tried, and how successful these had been.
