The Trustworthiness of Research: The Paradigm of CommunityBased Research
AbstractThe authors - a scientist, a community activist, and a philosopher and former university administrator - describe issues of trust surrounding traditional versus community-based research. We draw on our experiences in a research collaboration that engendered trust, created sound scientific data, and made real social change. We describe GRASS (Grass Roots Activism, Sciences and Scholarship) Routes, an initiative we have undertaken to promote trustworthiness as a core virtue of research, researchers, and research institutions.
