An Online Source Of Accountability Tools For Organisations Conducting Policy Relevant Research

The One World Trust has produced this online accountability database with support from the International Development Research Centre of Canada. It is an output of a three-year project, titled Accountability Principles for Research Organisations. The database is designed to support researchers, campaigners and research managers to think through the way they use evidence to influence policy in an accountable way.

The database takes into account that research organisations are increasingly diverse – they are no longer just universities, but private companies, public institutes and non-profit think-tanks. No single model can encompass this diversity.

At the moment, the database provides an inventory of around two hundred tools, standards and processes, within a broad, overarching accountability framework. With a dynamic interface and several search functions, it allows users to identify aspects of accountability that interests them, and provides ideas to improve their accountability in this context. Accountability issues go to the heart of what an organisation is. The database offers users ideas and tools which can be adapted to their circumstances, and which can help do anything from launching a comprehensive accountability review to addressing a specific process.

Each tool is supported by sources and further reading. The database will also allow users to interact with the database by commenting on individual tools, or submitting their own tools and ideas for inclusion. We encourage all the users of the database to propose their own tools, to comment on existing tools, to propose changes in classifications, or to provide further analysis, links or documents which you think can help policy-relevant researchers become more accountable. This can become a better resource with your support!
