Yanovitzky, Itzhak; Weber, Matthew – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
A broad range of methodologies is routinely employed to track and analyse use of research evidence in public policymaking. However, available methods and tools are mostly equipped to track 'evidence' but are less equipped to capture and represent 'use' of evidence. In particular, existing methods overlook policymakers' frequent use of evidence for…

Mols, Frank; Bell, Jennifer; Head, Brian – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
It is widely agreed that the availability of high quality evidence does not translate readily into influence over policy decisions. This insight has generated long-running debates about the most effective way to 'bridge the gap' between policy research and policymaking, and to increase policy research 'uptake'. The proposed remedies (for example,…

Masood, Sara; Kothari, Anita; Regan, Sandra – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020

Warren, Peter – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
Evidence reviews, commonly confused with literature reviews, are a crucial method not only for collating and synthesising the evidence base, but also for determining what the quality of previous evidence is and extracting the most amount of value from previous studies using systematic techniques. The paper focuses on the use of evidence reviews to…

Décieux, Jean Philippe Pierre – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
Knowledge co-production is a solution-oriented approach to analysing real-life problems such as making the right decision in a given scenario.

Fafard, Patrick; Hoffman, Steven J. – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
There is continuing interest in using the best available research evidence to inform public health policy. However, all too often efforts to do so rely on mechanistic and unrealistic views of the process by which public policy is made. As a result, traditional dyadic knowledge translation (KT) approaches may not be particularly effective when…

DuVal, Gordon; Shah, Seema – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020

The global movement to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda rests on strengthening international connections and cooperation. However, in recent years nationalism and protectionism have been on the rise in donor countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. In this situation, Julius…

Simoni, Cristian – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The central aim of this paper is to explore a kind of rationality that seeks to do justice to educational practice: to our understanding of its complexities and to its actual conduct. The enquiry begins with a review of the limits of standardising procedures, including their inbuilt technicist bias, which are increasingly dominant in educational…

Moschetti, Mauro; Martínez Pons, Marc; Bordoli, Eloísa; Martinis, Pablo – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Over the last decades privatization policies have taken centre stage in many processes of educational reform globally. In Latin America, these policies have played an important role since the 1990s leading to an increasing participation of private agents in educational provision. The case of Uruguay stands out for having remained somehow apart…
