This article explores some of the issues arising from data collection and contact methods employed in a research project exploring the links between practice learning and the recruitment and retention of social work staff in local authorities in England. The project employed email and attachment questionnaire and interview methods for data collection. Questions relating to consent, reminders and tracking of participants, as well as data quality and management were brought centre stage. This article explores some of the ethical and practice issues arising from this new approach and suggests some ways forward.
