Representing Gender Diversity in Human Research

UCD Research Ethics launches a short guide to representing gender diversity in human research

The purpose of this short guide is to draw researchers' attention to gender dimention in research and to promote gender balance and awareness of non-binary gender identities, such as transgender. The document includes recommendations for gender balance in research participant selection criteria and for inclusion of non-binary gender identities, where appropriate. It also provides links to definitions of non-binary gender-related terms.

The document can be accessed directly here: HREC Guideline - Representing Gender Diversity in Human Research and is permanently located in the Policies & Guidelines section.
