LHF-funded research, whether qualitative or quantitative, is well grounded with solid methodology, and is in dialogue with the existing body of literature in the field. LHF will give higher ranking to proposals that test hypotheses or evaluate research questions justified by the scientific literature. However, there are particular challenges associated with conducting research in a small, and often difficult to access, population of lesbians and sexual minority women. Going beyond the need to simply “fill in gaps in the literature” will require developing innovative research methodology.
