Research uptake and impact: Are we in danger of overstating ourselves?

From the London School of Economics blog, where Louise Shaxson injects a dose of realism into the debate around what that impact of research on policy ought to look like. Shaxson raises four key points: Researchers must provide clear policy messages, carefully define the relevance of their research, be realistic about what can be achieved, and be clear about whether they’re practising research communication or advocacy.
