More information on QOL Tech’s electronic versions
Step 1 - Firstly, QOL Technologies Ltd. (Mrs Jilly Styles - email@example.com) has to be contacted in order to pay a standard one-off user fee calculated per language and per package of questionnaires (commonly called the “paper & .pdf versions”). This package includes the most frequently used versions of questionnaires, an implementation document which provides information on administration, analysis and interpretation, and some reprints that describe the development and validation of the questionnaires. Once this fee has been paid it entitles your organisation worldwide (study sponsor) to unlimited usage of the paper and .pdf versions of the questionnaire(s).
This payment is required even if you intend using the questionnaires electronically.
Step 2 - Please fill out our user agreement and return it to us by e-mail. At this stage, though you are not required to sign the form, the information in the agreement is helping us calculate the quote (access fees) and determine the work that needs to be done with Mapi Language Services. We will be pleased to contact them on your behalf to obtain a quotation for the required work in case no electronic version is available in the language you are requesting and needs to be developed.
Step 3 - If you decide to go ahead, you will be requested to sign the full study-specific user agreement and return it completed to Mapi Research Trust (e-mail and hardcopy for our records). The invoice will then be issued.
Step 4 – If/When the version is available and once your payment has been received by Mapi Research Trust, you may use (depending on your request):
If you have any question, please feel free to contact us, we will be happy to guide you through the process.
