In many studies participants are asked to disclose sensitive information, and little is known about the participants’ experiences of disclosing this information. In particular, very few studies have been conducted on adolescents' experiences of participating in research on sensitive topics. Ethics review committees, therefore, have little information to inform and guide their decision making on this topic. Aims to conduct a systematic literature review on the literature describing adolescents’ and adults’ experiences of participating in a survey that included sensitive questions regarding abuse and intimate partner violence, and to compare the experiences of those who had been victims of violence with those who had not. To conduct primary research to describe adolescents’ experiences of participating in a survey that included sensitive questions regarding abuse and intimate partner violence in Cape Town, South Africa, and to compare the experiences of those who had been victims of these forms of violence with those who had not.
