Wojtowicz, Dominika Maria; Kupiec, Tomasz – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
For many European Union (EU) member states, the Cohesion Policy (CP) was the channel through which the practice of evaluation was transmitted into domestic administration. Studies have shown that the EU member countries differ in terms of their evaluation capacity and activity. None of those studies, however, addresses regional governments, which…

The Cultural Exchange Inventory (CEI) is a 15-item instrument designed to measure the process (7 items) and outcomes (8 items) of exchanges of knowledge, attitudes and practices between members of different organisations collaborating in implementing evidence-based practice. We conducted principal axis factor analyses and parallel analyses of data…

Heywood, Peter; Stephani, Anne Marie; Garner, Paul – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Cochrane is an international network that produces and updates new knowledge through systematic reviews for the health sector. Knowledge is a shared resource, and can be viewed as a commons. As Cochrane has been in existence for 25 years, we used Elinor Ostrom's theory of the commons and Institutional Analysis and Development Framework to appraise…

Rushmer, Rosemary; Shucksmith, Janet – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In this paper the development of askFuse is used as a case study to illustrate contextual and system barriers to universities providing useful, usable and timely research evidence in response to local practice and policy partners' stated public health research needs. Entrenched systems (research excellence framework, academic career pathways,…

Shaw, Jessica – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Science can provide empirically-informed strategies and resources to inform and improve policy and practice, though all too often science, policy, and practice operate independently from one another. Research mediators play a critical role by attempting to connect these different worlds. This practice paper presents lessons learned and…

Morton, Sarah; Seditas, Karen – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Barriers to using research in practice are well documented. This paper describes an innovative process developed by the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships to address these barriers. We supported people to define what they needed to know; how existing evidence could help; and how to use evidence in practice. An action-focused…

Bøllingtoft Knudsen, Søren – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Focus on evidence-based policymaking is greater than ever, and public spending on evaluations is rising. A primary merit of these expenditures is that politicians actually use new knowledge instrumentally--to influence and inform decision making. Nevertheless, we know surprisingly little about whether and how research-based knowledge is utilised.…

Geddes, Marc; Dommett, Katharine; Prosser, Brenton – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In the context of ongoing debates around academic engagements with policymakers, this article discusses how academics can successfully engage with the often overlooked institution of Parliament. We argue that the UK Parliament is not a homogeneous organisation but has differing knowledge requirements for different parliamentary sites. While there…

To maximise the potential impact and acceptability of EIDM capacity building, there is a need for programmes to coordinate their remits within existing systems, playing both 'insider' and 'outsider' roles. Through a review of the South African evidence-policy landscape and analysis of a stakeholder event that brought together EIDM role players,…

Wyndham-West, Michelle; Wiktorowicz, Mary; Tsasis, Peter – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
This article captures how scientific uncertainty is negotiated and its implications on public health policy. Through the case study of the Human Papillomavirus vaccine in Canada, we investigated how policymakers engage in 'sensemaking', the process whereby policymakers mediate shifting informational terrain to come to an understanding of what…

Oliver, Sandra; Bangpan, Mukdarut; Dickson, Kelly – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
This study employed insider research and reflective practice to investigate exchanges across the research-policy interface to understand the practice of producing policy-relevant systematic reviews. Interviewees came from 11 systematic reviews or review programmes which spanned four models of policy-relevant reviews and between them provided…

Vallgårda, Signild – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In 2003 an executive order was issued banning industrially produced trans-fatty acids above a low level in food items in Denmark. To date, only a few other countries have followed Denmark's example. The way health consequences of trans fats were translated by the different actors enabled the creation of alliances between researchers, politicians,…

Background: Informing policy and practice with up-to-date evidence on the social determinants of health is an ongoing challenge. One limitation of traditional approaches is the time-lag between identification of a policy or practice need and availability of results. The Right Here Right Now (RHRN) study piloted a near-real-time data-collection…

Stender, Steen; Dyerberg, Jørn; Astrup, Arne – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In this paper, Signild Vallgårda (SV) investigates why a ban against the use of industrially produced trans fatty acids in foods was introduced in Denmark as the first country in the world. SV correctly states that our part of, and activity in that process, represent a combination of scientific work and 'policymaking'. We, however object to some…
