AUW researchers are ethically obligated to communicate their research results to the scholarly world through scientific, professional, and other channels so that other researchers are informed about the research and are able to build on the reported findings, making their findings accessible and consistent with the relevant standards of publication. Additionally, efforts to make new information/insights needed by the public or communities that can inform, educate, and help people empower themselves should also be made accessible to these groups in a timely manner. It is also recommended that AUW researchers bring summaries of proposed, approved research to the public domain before the research is conducted and results known. When possible, researchers should strive to return transcripts to participants for checking and validation.
Researchers must also ensure that the transparency requirements are bided by, and that the research reports, materials, and data connected with the research are preserved and duly archived, inclusive of data and notes which are to be retained for a period of seven (7) years as may be prescribed or considered necessary for the purposes of post-research monitoring, evaluating the research, or conducting further research by the initial researcher or otherwise.
