  3. Research site monitoring for compliance with ethics regulatory standards: review of experience from Uganda. [REVIEW]Joseph Ochieng, Julius Ecuru, Frederick Nakwagala & Paul Kutyabami - 2013 - BMC Medical Ethics 14 (1):23.

However, it is least carried out primarily for two reasons: presumed high costs both in terms of human resources and finances; and the lack of a clear framework for undertaking site monitoring. In this paper we discuss a model for research site monitoring that may be cost effective and feasible in low resource settings.
