The article describes three models for how payments to research participants could be made. The models had been studied by Neal Dickert, a resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. According to the market model, participants would be paid according to the potential for benefit and the degree of risk in a study. The wage-payment model suggests that research participation does not require skills, but does require time, endurance and effort. The reimbursement model has research sites paying participants only enough to cover their expenses.
