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…

Mendel, Jonathan – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
The use of trials in the policy process is often presented as a move towards evidence-based policy and away from authority-, ideology- or faith-based policy. However, this paper will draw on two UK examples of unpublished policy trials in order to argue that when policy is based on such research it should not usually be described as…

Allen, William L. – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2017
Civil society organisations increasingly mediate the creation and exchange of evidence in their activities with policy-makers and practitioners. This article extends knowledge on evidence in policy-making settings to civil society contexts. As an exploratory and qualitative study, it shows how nine UK-based organisations working on issues…

Lawrence, Natalia S.; Chambers, Jemma C.; Morrison, Sinead M.; Bestmann, Sven; O'Grady, Gerard; Chambers, Christopher D.; Kythreotis, Andrew – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2017
The value of evidence-based policy is well established, yet major hurdles remain in connecting policymakers with the wider research community. Here we assess whether a UK Evidence Information Service (EIS) could facilitate interaction between parliamentarians and research professionals. Fifty-six UK parliamentarians were interviewed to gauge the…

Bruce, Ann; O'Callaghan, Kenneth – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2016
The evidence-policy interface is important for delivery of sustainable development policy. We examine one specific form of knowledge brokering, the temporary placement of academic research scientists in UK policy arenas. We argue that successful knowledge brokerage depends on establishing social processes critical to effective knowledge exchange.…

McCabe, Karen Elizabeth; Wallace, Annie; Crosland, Ann – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2015
This paper introduces a model for collaborative working to facilitate knowledge mobilisation in public health. The model has been developed by university researchers who worked collaboratively with public health commissioners and strategic partners to evaluate a portfolio of short-term funded interventions to inform re-commissioning. Within this…

Sharples, Jonathan – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2015
This paper reports on a "proof-of-concept" for evidence-informed practice, whereby schools are provided with tailored support in accessing research evidence and help in implementing evidence-based approaches. Two aspects of intermediary brokerage are explored: (a) creating tailored summary materials for schools, based on education…

Harnan, Sue Elizabeth; Cooper, Katy; Jones, Sarah Lynne; Jones, Elaine – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2015
Full systematic reviews are time and resource heavy. We describe a method successfully used to produce a rapid review of yoga for health and wellbeing, with limited resources, using mapping methods. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were developed a priori and refined "post hoc," with the review team blind to the study results to minimise…

Flitcroft, Kathy; Gillespie, James; Carter, Stacy; Salkeld, Glenn; Trevena, Lyndal – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2014
Much of the evidence translation literature focuses narrowly on the use of evidence in the initial policy formulation stages, and downplays the crucial role of institutions and the inherently political nature of policy making. More recent approaches acknowledge the importance of institutional and political factors, but make no attempt to…

McKevitt, Christopher – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
Patient and public involvement in health research has been promoted by the United Kingdom's Department of Health and its research funding agencies for at least a decade. The policy rhetoric through which it is promoted is based on the idea that patients' experiential knowledge can be harnessed to improve the quality and relevance of health…

Phipps, David; Morton, Sarah – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
Employing knowledge brokers is one way that universities and research centres have responded to the increasing emphasis on the wider usefulness and uptake of research beyond the academy. While there is an increase in the numbers of such professionals, there has been little focus on their roles, skills and development. In this paper, two knowledge…

Murdock, Alex; Shariff, Razia; Wilding, Karl – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
This paper considers the different approaches to undertake knowledge exchange between academia and the third sector from three practitioner perspectives. London South Bank University (LSBU), as part of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Third Sector Research Centre (TSRC) Social Enterprise Capacity Building Cluster (CBC), has been…

Lightowler, Claire; Knight, Christine – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
Over the last decade, higher education policy in the United Kingdom (UK) has increasingly focused on the impact of academic research. This has resulted in the emergence of specialist knowledge brokers within UK universities in the social sciences and humanities. Our empirical research identified a tension between the research impact agenda and the…

Smith, Katherine E.; Kay, Louise; Torres, Jennifer – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
The number of think tanks operating in the UK is increasing, providing an ever important source of ideas and research for policy audiences. They have been framed by some as useful intermediaries between research and policy, which academics aiming to influence policy might seek to emulate. Yet, there has been very little empirical work to explore…

Martin, Graham P.; Ward, Vicky; Hendy, Jane; Rowley, Emma; Nancarrow, Susan; Heaton, Janet; Britten, Nicky; Fielden, Sandra; Ariss, Steven – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2011
The limited extent to which research evidence is utilised in healthcare and other public services is widely acknowledged. The United Kingdom government has attempted to address this gap by funding nine Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRCs). CLAHRCs aim to carry out health research, implement research findings…
