Impact is a series of high-quality, open access and free to access science reports designed to enable the dissemination of research impact to key stakeholders.

With unique editions covering many academic disciplines, this publication offers a much needed platform for projects and researchers to communicate the impact of their work. Impact is distributed worldwide in print and digital format to a carefully selected and curated audience of stakeholders, specific to each academic field including: public sector; policy; NGOs; funding agencies; academics; and key private sectors.
Created by an award winning team of leading science communication staff with decades of combined experience publishing academic books, papers and broad science publications, our team has worked with over 5,000 research projects to help disseminate impact and facilitate outreach.
Engaging and informative content is key to Impact. Content that effectively communicates the objectives, planned impact and relevance of research is critical to engaging stakeholders. Our editorial and design staff work closely with all featured researchers to craft an editorial piece that disseminates their research expertly.
Prior to a research project being featured in Impact, a full evaluation of the project is undertaken. This helps us understand which stakeholders need to be reached, the most effective channels to do this and most importantly how we will maximise the impact, legacy and engagement of the content we create. Whether your dissemination aim is to engage fellow academics for future research projects, target public sector, funders or policy makers to influence future decisions, or to engage directly with the end users of your research, Impact offers you an effective channel to reach and engage.
Impact moves beyond legacy models of content distribution and embraces a new age where your audience want to access research content across multiple channels and formats.
Each edition of Impact is distributed free of charge in a print and digital format to 35,000 readers across Europe, North and South America, Asia-Pacific and Africa.
Our database of readers is carefully compiled, curated and targeted to ensure maximum impact and reach for each edition of the publication.
Every edition is made available for download via app on Android and iTunes and through this website. Individual article level downloads are available to ensure the widest possible use and dissemination of research content.
The audience for each edition of Impact is carefully selected according to the content to maximise impact. Our core audience for every edition includes national and regional funding agencies, research funding bodies, national, regional and local government, public sector organisations, policy and legislation organisations, universities, research institutes, research centres, NGOs and key industry/private sectors relevant to the edition.
