Abstract

In this article, we aim to provide readers with tools to critically consider decisions related to conducting research with trans populations. We first present the historical and contemporary contexts that shaped our approach to writing this article, and drawing from various social justice frameworks, we set forward our own critical framework to guide the discussion of research considerations with trans populations. We then move into discussing considerations for participant recruitment and sampling strategies, such as effective use of language in recruitment and study materials, consideration of research venues, and recruitment of diverse samples. We also provide a number of considerations related to research methods, study design, and dissemination of study results. Therefore, this article seeks to not only raise a number of important considerations for research with trans populations but also to provide readers with critical tools for adapting decision making when planning and conducting research with trans populations.
