Johansson, Kerstin – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2019
It is possible to discern a new trend replacing New Public Management (NPM) in human service organisations. This trend comprises a discussion about evidence and governance with the goal of establishing a knowledge-based practice within Swedish social service. Efforts aimed at promoting an evidence-based practice have been an explicit part of…

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…

Synnot, Anneliese J.; Lowe, Dianne; Merner, Bronwen; Hill, Sophie J. – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Knowledge translation resources that summarise and disseminate systematic review findings can support evidence into policy and practice. Since 2007, we have produced Evidence Bulletins; brief, web-based summaries of Cochrane Reviews published by Cochrane Consumers and Communication.

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 However, this paper will draw on two UK examples of unpublished policy trials in order to argue that when policy is based on such research it should not usually be described as…

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…

Stewart, Ruth; Langer, Laurenz; Wildeman, Russell; Erasmus, Yvonne; Maluwa, Louis Gerald; Jordaan, Sunet; Lötter, Desyreé; Mitchell, Janine; Motha, Precious – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
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…

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,…

Jakobsen, Mette Winge; Lau, Cathrine Juel; Skovgaard, Thomas; Hämäläinen, Riitta-Maija; Aro, Arja R. – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
This article analyses the use of research evidence (RE) in three policy processes, at the local level, dealing with physical activity. We analysed an extensive number of policy documents and a total of 14 interviews with policymakers. Results show an unsystematic way of using RE, where demographic and statistical data as well as expert…

The purpose of this paper is to throw light on sustained research-practice collaborations (called 'schemes' here) aimed at improving educational outcomes. The empirical work combines a survey of thirteen school-university knowledge-exchange schemes in six European countries, with four case studies drawn from these. Three theoretical models of…

Masood, Sara; Kothari, Anita; Regan, Sandra – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Background: ways of perceiving evidence by public health managers, practitioners and policymakers is one of the key determinants of evidence uptake. Recent public health policy in Ontario requires programmes to be based on evidence. Therefore, understanding views about evidence in both practice and policy contexts is important to bridge the…

Bekkers, Victor; Van Buuren, Arwin; Edwards, Arthur; Fenger, Menno – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In dealing with wicked problems, policymakers increasingly are confronted with three competing 'knowledge claims': the notion of evidence-based policy, alternative 'commons knowledge' created by citizens, and 'fact-free' politics. Consequently, the knowledge base for dealing with wicked problems is becoming increasingly contested. This paper…

Matthews, Peter; Rutherfoord, Robert; Connelly, Steve; Richardson, Liz; Durose, Catherine; Vanderhoven, Dave – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Research into the barriers of getting evidence produced by academics into policymaking processes has often highlighted the lack of research on academics and what they do, as compared to what policymakers do. This was most recently highlighted in a systematic review of the literature (Oliver et al, 2014). This paper reports on research carried out…

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…

This paper explores the enormous variation in views, championing behaviours and impacts of liaison people: staff nominated to facilitate, tailor and promote SPIRIT (a research utilisation intervention trial in six Australian health policy agencies).
