Healy A, Kadungure A, Smith C, McFee E, Nakebembe E, Jones I, Fledderjohann J, McQuaid K, Le Doare K, Contractor S & Rashid S (2022) The NCRM wayfinder guide to equitable research relations in and after Covid-19. Southampton: National Centre for Research Methods.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on international research practices. Restrictions on global travel have disrupted planned research projects and encouraged researchers to explore new ways of undertaking research ‘at a distance’, either directly or through collaborations with international partners. A previous Wayfinder Guide on ethical practices during Covid-19 identified how the pandemic has exposed historic and exploitative inequalities within the global research community, as well as providing opportunities to do research differently. This guide draws upon workshop discussions and recent literature to provide pointers and ideas on how experience of the pandemic might be mobilised to establish more equitable research practices.
