Abstract and Keywords

This article provides a synthesis and summary of Section IV of this book. This section has drawn on personal experiences and expertise to consider current issues in appearance research and have offered a range of suggestions and valuable guidance to new and established researchers in this field. We are moving from a time during which research questions were formulated primarily by clinicians and academics, through current times in which researchers are increasingly involving the public in shaping the focus of research, to a new era in which the public are involved at all stages of the research process. In addition to the compelling moral and ethical imperatives of including the public in research, systematic patient and public involvement (PPI) is now becoming a requirement by governments and the majority of funding bodies.

Keywords: appearance research, research methods, patient and public involvement, PPI
