The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides a useful website, About Research Participation, with resources that are designed to help potential research subjects better understand research and ask for the information they need to decide whether or not to participate. The resources include a series of short videos about participating in research and a printable list of questions potential volunteers can ask researchers.

Current and potential research participants are encouraged to check out the links on About Research Participation to watch videos, view questions to ask researchers, and find additional resources related to research participation.
