Research Design and Statistical Consulting
George M. Diekhoff, Ph.D.

Here’s how to get started and how we’ll work on your project

Contact me by email or go to my Contact page. Tell me a little about your project. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.If you think you haven’t heard from me by then, check your spam folder! I pride myself on being available to you quickly.

  • I’ll ask you to send me additional information–your research proposal, including research questions, copies of any surveys or instruments you’re using, and your data, if you have collected data already. Your identity and everything you send me will be kept absolutely confidential and will not be shared with anyone else.
  • You might not have anything more than an idea. That’s fine too. I’m happy to work with you in developing your research proposal from the ground up.
  • I’ll review the information you send me within a day or two and will get back to you with my recommendations and an estimate of your costs. All of this preliminary work is absolutely free.
  • Once you’ve seen my recommendations and estimate, let me know if you want to hire me. If so, I’ll get started immediately. There’s no up-front fee. I do the work first and you only pay me if you’re happy with it.
  • Once I start your project I’ll be in touch with you regularly. We’ll quickly develop a relationship based on earned trust, respect,  communication, and collegiality.
  • After I’ve completed a block of work for you, I’ll send it to you for your approval. If my work isn’t what you expected, I’ll do my best to make it right. I won’t expect you to pay me until you are satisfied with the work I’ve done for you.
  • We’ll continue in this manner until the project is done and you’ve passed your oral defense.
  • If you decide that you want to publish your research, I’ll assist you in turning your work into a manuscript.

Send me a description of your project now by email. I’ll see what I can do to help you. There’s no charge, no obligation, and no risk.
