The book contains several checklists for the field. There are included here in PDF format. You may download and print them for your own personal use but you may not further distribute them without written permission. Please provide a link to this page instead. Not all the checklists from the book are included here; this is only a sample (plus some other material which did not appear in the book).

  • Equipment
  • Elicitation procedure and data gathering checklist 
  • Questions to consider when writing fieldnotes (created for Rice field methods class, 2005/6, and updated for Yale’s class in Fall, 2011)
  • Sample consent form, including sample oral consent script 

Note: Many IRBs have their own requirements for the content of consent forms, and there may be legal requirements for wording in some cases. This checklist has been used in IRB applications which have been approved by Yale University, Harvard University, Rice University, The Australian National University, and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies.
