Waring, Justin; Jenelle, Clarke; Vickers, Rob – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2021
Background: Knowledge brokers facilitate the creation, sharing and use of knowledge among different research, policy and practice communities. This paper examines the way collective knowledge brokering can address the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic boundaries that separate research and practice communities. Methods: A comparative ethnographic…

Background: Public service practitioners on all levels aim to solve increasingly complex policy problems by making use of different forms of evidence. While there are many complex models of knowledge mobilisation, not enough attention is paid to the types of knowledge that are mobilised for public service reform. Ward (2017) has returned to…

Sheldrick, R. Christopher; Hyde, Justeen; Leslie, Laurel K.; Mackie, Thomas – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2021
Many of the resources developed to promote the use of evidence in policy aspire to an ideal of rational decision making, yet their basis in the decision sciences is often unclear. Tracing the historical development of evidence-informed policy to its roots in "evidence-based medicine" (EBM), we distinguish between two understandings of…

Neely, Kate; Bortz, Martin; Bice, Sara – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2021
This article provides an appraisal of collaborative conceptual modelling (CCM) as a tool for research translation. First developed by Newell and Proust (2012), CCM draws on the tools and frameworks of systems thinking as a way of addressing transdisciplinary problems. We applied CCM in two separate workshops - one discussing 'Digital Cities', and…

Norton, Theresa C.; Rodriguez, Daniela C.; Howell, Catherine; Reynolds, Charlene; Willems, Sara – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2021
Background: Little is known about how knowledge brokers (KBs) operate in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to translate evidence for health policy and practice. These intermediaries facilitate relationships between evidence producers and users to address public health issues. Aims and objectives: To increase understanding, a mixed-methods…

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,…

Lee Pettman, Tahna; Armstrong, Rebecca; Johnson, Shae; Love, Penelope; Gill, Timothy; Coveney, John; Swinburn, Boyd; Allender, Steven – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2020
Obesity prevention is an urgent public health priority that requires action at multiple levels. Collaboration between academics, policy and practice is necessary to ensure best-practice implementation. A national knowledge translation and exchange (KT) platform, the Collaboration of Community-based Obesity Prevention Sites (CO-OPS), was delivered…

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…
