Abstract

Drawing on presentations given at a workshop sponsored by Cohort and Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resources (CLOSER), this article reviews the range of participant engagement strategies used by longitudinal studies in the UK and around the world. Studies are evolving traditional approaches like mailings and materials, using websites and social media, tailoring monetary incentives, and using different forms of face-to-face interactions with participants like social events and advisory groups. We present what these studies have found to be best practice, discuss key learnings and similarities and differences between studies as well as proposing avenues for future research.
