A research review of 46 peer-reviewed articles with bisexuals as a target group was conducted with the objective to investigate methods of finding bisexual participants in empirical Social Sciences studies. The aim was to examine occurring definitions of “bisexual”, sample types, and sources of data. Results indicated that a self-identification definition was most frequently used, that sample type was seldom reported with an even distribution between probability and non-probability sample types when occurring, and that sources of data varied with media as most frequent. Some of the conclusions drawn were that bisexuals often occur in the same studies as lesbians and gay men, and that bisexual women have a poor representation in studies.
