PLoS Medicine (2012) 9(3):e1001193

This article comes from the Ethics Working Group of the HIV Prevention Trials Network. The authors discuss the current ethical frameworks for reviewing material or financial incentives provided to research participants either as compensation for their time and expenses, or as an inducement to participate in research. This article is of interest to IRBs because it offers guidance for improving the evaluation of research in which incentives are used as an intervention intended to promote healthy behavior.
