Query:   Dear list members,

I am currently working on a Ph.D project which involves sociolinguistic fieldwork in Ireland. I was told by a friend that it is imperative to obtain written consent from the people you interview for American publishers (the thesis is for a German university where you have to publish your findings). As I have never heard about this with European publishers (I have the oral consent of all people to use the material for my Ph.D., of course) I would be interested, if anyone has any experience with publishing research based on interviews. Do I need written consent, and if so, what does it have to look like exactly?

Thank you for your help,
Astrid Fiess
