Research Design Resources

Knowledge Mobilization and Translation Resources Research Ethics Resources Research Data Management Resources Citational Politics and Practice Resources

Put simply, citational politics means "How do we cite types and sources of knowledge beyond the usual suspects when citational expectations, infrastructure, and norms make that difficult?" (CLEAR Lab). Being critical in looking at whom you cite the most in your research is part of applying equity and inclusion to your research design. The following are a list of resources to help you get started:

Research Design Resource Library

The UWinnipeg Research Design Resource Library for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is a living database for resources pertaining to:

  • Theoretical frameworks
  • Methods
  • Knowledge mobilization/translation planning
  • Data management planning
  • Research ethics

These resources can be searched using keywords related to discipline, identity groups, etc.

The Tri-Agency defines equity, diversity, and inclusion in research design as "considering the use of EDI approaches in the overall design of the research . . . , as applicable—e.g., research questions, methods, theoretical frameworks, literature reviews, analyses and interpretations, and knowledge mobilization activities— . . . because it can reveal complexities surrounding the lived experiences and histories of different groups and individuals who could be affected by the findings. EDI may be incorporated in different ways, such as through intersectional analysis, gender-based analysis plus (GBA+), anti-racist, anti-ableist, anti-homophobic, etc. approaches, and disaggregated data collection. The purpose of an EDI approach to research design is to promote rigorous research that considers identity factors, to ensure that the results are impactful and relevant to the diversity of the Canadian population.

Put simply, applying equity, diversity, and inclusion to the design of your research project means considering the existing biases and barriers within your entire research process from questions to dissemination and mitigating them.
