Abstract

We are a group of researchers and writers who work on bisexuality, organise bisexual research conferences, and take part in discussions on many bisexual and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) academic forums. We have noticed, over the years, many problematic tendencies in research that focuses on, or includes, bisexuals. We therefore felt that it would be useful to come up with a list of “good practice” guidelines for people researching and writing in this area. These should be particularly useful to those new to the area when they send out their calls for participants, to avoid alienating those participants or finding themselves 'reinventing the wheel' with their studies. Hopefully the guidelines will also be helpful for experienced researchers to reflect on their research practices
