Mapping the field: Use of research evidence in policy and practice

Use of research evidence (URE) is relevant to many academic disciplines.   Based on a survey of people involved in URE, this report, Mapping the field: Research Use in Policy & Practice, describes the URE landscape and the networks within this scholarly community.  The report highlights opportunities for growth and recognition as a field.   This work was done in collaboration with the William T. Grant Foundation.

A list of organizations which fund use of research evidence and a comprehensive reference list are included.  These resources are available as separate documents.
