Important information for participating in research surveys

Extended Family is a nationally recognized organization, and we are periodically contacted by doctoral and masters program students and others in academia who are researching various elements of incarceration and the effects on the family.  We make a concerted effort to vet each research project before publishing the information, but Extended Family is not affiliated with, nor a participant of, any listed research project, unless explicitly stated.  Your participation in any research project is strictly voluntary and Extended Family does not offer any form of compensation or incentives for participation.  Any responsibility for compensatory offers for participation in any research program lies solely with the individual or group conducting the study.  If you have any concerns about any research program listed, please email Extended Family at
