Stephen MacGregor – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: Despite the growing interest in knowledge brokering as an approach to mobilising knowledge for societal benefit, research has only recently begun investigating the consequences of knowledge brokers' actions. In particular, while it is known that failure can provide a valuable learning experience for individuals and organisations alike,…

Louise Warwick-Booth; Ruth Cross; James Woodall – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: Despite literature recognising the huge potential of co-production as a positive approach to evidence creation, there is a dearth of evidence about how co-production principles can problematise knowledge exchange, specifically in evaluation work. Aims: To critically examine three evaluation projects commissioned by voluntary sector…

Katharine A. Boyd; Brian Rappert; Dreolin N. Fleischer – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Collaborative projects designed to generate research evidence involve knowledge exchange (KE) which hinges on the expectations and practices within the collaborating organisations. Existing literature about academic-police collaborations, and why they break down, has largely focused on different knowledge agendas, research timeframes and…

Jonas Videbaek Jørgensen – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: Understanding knowledge utilisation in policymaking is a core task for the social and political sciences. However, limitations and biases abound in commonplace approaches to measuring such use. Consequently, we have little systematic evidence of the extent to which knowledge sources are used in policy decisions. Aims and objectives:…

Chris Ackerley; Ellen Balka – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: Research coproduction is advocated as an approach to produce more impactful evidence, by valuing a diversity of expertise and integrating knowledge users into research processes. Yet, extant literature finds that trying to bridge boundaries between different types of knowledge can also cause collaboration challenges and present…

Jan Lecouturier; Ivo Vlaev; Paul Chadwick; Angel M. Chater; Michael P. Kelly; Louis Goffe; Carly Meyer; Mei Yee Tang; Vivi Antonopoulou; Fiona Graham; Falko F. Sniehotta – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2024
Background: There has been a rapid increase in the number of, and demand for, organisations offering behavioural science advice to government over the last ten years. Yet we know little of the state of science and the experiences of these evidence providers. Aims and objectives: To identify current practice in this emerging field and the factors…

Dewaele, Alexis; Anderson, Lindsey; Klima, Noel; Lauwerier, Emelien – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Research impact is at least partly generated through collaborative interactions, yet the associations between knowledge production and impact are far more complex than relatively simple linear models generally describe. Aims and objectives: In this case study, we focus on a community-university partnership and try to answer the…

Scott, Taylor; Pugel, Jessica; Fernandes, Mary; Cruz, Katherine; Long, Elizabeth C.; Giray, Cagla; Storace, Rachel; Crowley, D. Max – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: It is widely recognised that policymakers use research deemed relevant, yet little is understood about ways to enhance perceived relevance of research evidence. Observing policymakers' access of research online provides a pragmatic way to investigate predictors of relevance. Aims and objectives: This study investigates a range of…

Bandola-Gill, Justyna; Arthur, Megan; Ivor Leng, Rhodri – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: 'Co-production' is one of the key concepts in evidence-informed policy and practice -- in terms of both its theoretical importance and its practical applications - being consistently discussed as the most effective strategy for mobilising evidence in policy and practice contexts. The concept of co-production was developed (almost)…

Lamont, Tara; Maxwell, Elaine – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: There has been little applied learning from organisations engaged in making evidence useful for decision makers. More focus has been given either to the work of individuals as knowledge brokers or to theoretical frameworks on embedding evidence. More intelligence is needed on the practice of knowledge intermediation. Aims and…

Gerblinger, Christiane – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Seeing how governments formulate decisions on our behalf is a crucial component of their ability to claim democratic legitimacy. This includes being seen to draw on the knowledge and evidence produced by their civil service policy advisers. Yet much of the advice provided to governments is being increasingly withdrawn from public…

Hannah, Adam; Tchilingirian, Jordan; Botterill, Linda; Attwell, Katie – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Recent complex and cross-boundary policy problems, such as climate change, pandemics, and financial crises, have recentred debates about state capacity, democratic discontent and the 'crisis of expertise'. These problems are contested and open to redefinition, misunderstanding, spin, and deception, challenging the ability of…

Guillot-Wright, Shannon; Oliver, Kathryn – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Despite the known need for empirical research-to-policy studies, little is known about the factors and conditions needed to support meaningful evidence use or how to intervene to promote quality evidence use. Aims and objectives: To study research-policy processes empirically and descriptively, we conducted an ethnography that focused…

Auld, Megan; Doig, Emmah; Bennett, Sally – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Knowledge brokers in higher education are described as requiring a broad range of skills and characteristics, leading to both role conflict and ambiguity. Although existing studies report broad concepts regarding the role of knowledge brokers, the activities that they actually perform to broker knowledge are not systematically reported…

MacKillop, Eleanor; Downe, James – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2023
Background: Government-funded knowledge brokering organisations (KBOs) are an increasingly prevalent yet under-researched area. Working in the space between knowledge and policy, yet framing themselves as different from think tanks and academic research centres, these organisations broker evidence into policy. Aims and objectives: This article…
