Teaching the Ethical Conduct of Global Health Research Through Archived Grey Literature
Numerous authors have critiqued the unnecessary duplication of previous research as ‘perversely unethical;’ a waste of resources. Ethical modes of using existing research material include increasing value and reducing waste. One form of ‘waste’ is the potential for grey literature to languish, unused as a resource,locked away in archives. To address this, we developed a unique pedagogical exercise immersing global health students in an archive of HIV and AIDS-related grey literature. This exercise used grey literature creatively to produce a cross-disciplinary piece of art reflecting on existing archival material and provided students with awareness of the ethical dimensions of value, waste, and creativity in global health research.
