OhioGuidestone’s Research Portal serves as an online hub for electronic research data collection at OhioGuidestone and the Institute of Family & Community Impact.

At the Research Portal website, you can sign up for our studies, fill out study questionnaires, and sign consent forms. All of our electronic forms are secure and confidential. Completed forms are then sent directly to research staff. Because of this, portal users receive the same level of security and privacy as they would for in-person studies.

Additionally, you can find information at the portal about our Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB monitors and approves the OhioGuidestone Research Portal as well as our ongoing studies. Our current studies include Joyful Together® and Father’s Feelings.

The portal also contains instructions for virtual study visits and resources for our research staff.
