Collection details

Research for Policy Decision Making

Research for All special series.


Research for All publishing studies of how knowledge is shared between decision-makers, researchers and grass roots communities. These are studies of how policy is influenced by research, and how research is influenced by policy to create demand-led research. Our authors in this area come largely from the global south to take advantage of our open access policy that allows authors and readers to engage with the journal with paying charges either from research teams or from libraries. These papers will be of particular interest to policy makers and researchers who are attending Evidence 2022 in Pretoria, South Africa in September 2022.

Publication date: 2017 to the present
