The absurdity of research registration for community-oriented knowledge coproduction (2021)
Type of ContentJournal Article
►Requirement for a priori registration of research builds on the colonial roots of global health, excluding community-based researchers from global conversations. ► When communities and community-based organisations (CBOs) coproduce knowledge, it is more relevant, acceptable, appropriate, responsive and effective in generating change. ► Recognising the inherent value of studies which are small, specific, local, descriptive, observational or which focus on implementation reorders the current hierarchies of rigour and contributes to decolonising global health. ► Registration provides one pathway to public accountability, but perhaps a more rigorous pathway to accountability is long-term, engaged and documented relationships between researchers and communities. ► When necessary, global health research should allow for retrospective registration, with full fee waivers for researchers from CBOs and low-income and middle-income settings.
