We investigate in detail the phase diagrams of the p-body +/-J Ising model with and without random fields on random graphs with fixed connectivity. One of our most interesting findings is that a thermodynamic spin glass phase is present in the three-body purely ferromagnetic model in random fields, unlike for the canonical two-body interaction random-field Ising model. We also discuss the location of the phase boundary between the paramagnetic and spin glass phases that does not depend on the
