On measuring community participation in research
This article presents two complementary approaches to measuring the level of community participation in research—a “three-model” approach that differentiates between the levels of community participation, and a Community Engagement in Research Index (CERI) that offers a multidimensional view of community engagement in the research process. The article discusses the strengths and limitations of each approach, summarizes the lessons learned, and offers directions for future research.
