Background: Public service practitioners on all levels aim to solve increasingly complex policy problems by making use of different forms of evidence.

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
The use of robust research findings in public health policy has been strongly encouraged for bridging the evidence-policy gap. To assess and further promote evidence uptake, understanding how research evidence is being used by decision makers is very important. This systematic review examined primary studies exploring the use of research evidence…

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. The most popular examples come from evidence-based policymaking contexts. Political decisions made in this way rely on specialist expertise co-produced in organisations that can be characterised as Hybrid…

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…

Option B+ is a strategy to prevent mother to child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV that involves starting pregnant, HIV-positive women on triple drug antiretroviral therapy (ART) and continuing for…

Paul, Katharina T.; Palfinger, Thomas – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
Background: Vaccination policy has grown increasingly polarised, and concerns about vaccination practices are often articulated jointly with fears over declining trust in scientific expertise and the demise of evidence-based policy. This has led to a discursive deadlock in which evidence comes to denote something that is crafted and monopolised by…

Background: Indonesia's growth and prosperity as a lower-middle-income country hinges on the ability of policymakers to develop effective public policies based on evidence. Yet Indonesia's policy and regulatory environment does not support the production of high-quality evidence and its use in policymaking. Key points for discussion: This article…

Andrews, Nick; Gabbay, John; Le-May, Andreé; Miller, Emma; Petch, Alison; O'Neill, Martin – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
Background: Evidence-based practice in social care and health is widely promoted. Making it a reality remains challenging, partly because practitioners generally see practice-based knowledge as more relevant than empirical research. A further challenge regarding the creative, contextual use of research and other evidence including lived experience…
