Keskustelu:Tiedolla johtamisen menetelmät ja työkalut
Perustelut jaetun ymmärryksen käyttöönotolle päätösvalmistelussa
Tarkastelun kohteena on tutkimustiedon käyttö yhteiskunnallisen päätöksenteon tukena. Erityisesti pohditaan valtioneuvoston päätöksentekoa (esimerkiksi ministeriöiden lakivalmistelu, hallituksen toiminta, hallitusohjelman ja muiden strategioiden toteuttaminen). Aiemmissa tarkasteluissa on valikoitunut periaatteita, joiden soveltamista pidetään hyvänä tiedon käytön edistämisessä. Tässä keskustelussa käydään kriittisesti läpi näiden periaatteiden hyödyllisyyttä tutkimustiedon ja kokemusperäisen tiedon valossa. Periaatteiden tarkoituksena on tuottaa osallistujien kesken jaettu ymmärrys.

McKevitt, Christopher TI Optimising Translational Research Opportunities: A Systematic Review and Narrative Synthesis of Basic and Clinician Scientists' Perspectives of Factors Which Enable or Hinder Translational Research SO PLOS ONE ID STEM-CELL RESEARCH; SCIENCE; HEALTH; BEDSIDE; BENCH; GOVERNANCE; EFFICIENCY; MEDICINE; BARRIERS AB Introduction Translational research is central to international health policy, research and funding initiatives. Despite increasing use of the term, the translation of basic science discoveries into clinical practice is not straightforward. This systematic search and narrative synthesis aimed to examine factors enabling or hindering translational research from the perspective of basic and clinician scientists, a key stakeholder group in translational research, and to draw policy-relevant implications for organisations seeking to optimise translational research opportunities. Methods and Results We searched SCOPUS and Web of Science from inception until April 2015 for papers reporting scientists' views of the factors they perceive as enabling or hindering the conduct of translational research. We screened 8,295 papers from electronic database searches and 20 papers from hand searches and citation tracking, identifying 26 studies of qualitative, quantitative or mixed method designs. We used a narrative synthesis approach and identified the following themes: 1) differing concepts of translational research 2) research processes as a barrier to translational research; 3) perceived cultural divide between research and clinical care; 4) interdisciplinary collaboration as enabling translation research, but dependent on the quality of prior and current social relationships; 5) translational research as entrepreneurial science. Across all five themes, factors enabling or hindering translational research were largely shaped by wider social, organisational, and structural factors. Conclusion To optimise translational research, policy could consider refining translational research models to better reflect scientists' experiences, fostering greater collaboration and buy in from all types of scientists. Organisations could foster cultural change, ensuring that organisational practices and systems keep pace with the change in knowledge production brought about by the translational research agenda.

TI Advances in in transdisciplinarity: Epistemologies, methodologies and processes SO FUTURES DE Conceptual frameworks; Epistemologies; Methodologies; Outcomes; Transdisciplinary processes ID RESEARCH AGENDA AB There has been a proliferation of contributions about transdisciplinarity during the last decade. Today transdisciplinarity is known and referenced in the natural and social sciences, and the humanities, as well as numerous professions. Hence it is appropriate to take stock of what has been achieved in both education and research during the last 10 years. These achievements include development of conceptual and analytical frameworks, a diversification of methods and approaches in precise localities, specific cases showing the creative, reflexive and transformative capacity of transdisciplinary inquiry, and concerns about the asymmetries of power and control of participants during processes of the co-production of knowledge. However, conceptual and institutional barriers for transdisciplinary inquiry are still common whereas incentives remain rare. This is not only due to the scepticism of decision makers in academic institutions, in conventional funding agencies and in policy decision making but also to the formal education and personal motives of scientific researchers in academic institutions.

Warner, Mildred E. TI Climate Change and the Co-Production of Knowledge and Policy in Rural USA Communities SO SOCIOLOGIA RURALIS ID GREENHOUSE-GAS EMISSIONS; LOCAL-GOVERNMENT; CITIES; GOVERNANCE; INCLUSION; MIGRATION AB Climate change requires action at multiple levels of government. We focus on the potential for climate change policy creation among small rural governments in the USA. We argue that co-production of scientific knowledge and policy is a communicative approach that encompasses local knowledge flowing up from rural governments as well as expertise and power (to coordinate and ensure compliance) flowing down from higher level authority. Using environmental examples related to land use policy, natural gas hydro-fracturing, and watershed protection, we demonstrate the importance of knowledge flows, power, and coordination in policy creation. Co-production of knowledge and policy requires respect for local knowledge and a broader framing of issues to include both environmental and economic perspectives. While we see potential for local action, we caution that polycentric approaches lead to externality problems that require multi-level governance to ensure coordination and compliance.

That is the question broached in both this article and the entire special issue for which it serves as the introduction. To this end, we explore the abundant scientific literature pertaining to the topic and try to situate our own position within the broader setting. After discussing the gradual questioning of the social representations that have made scientific knowledge the ideal and standard by which we measure all knowledge, we argue that many authors with an essentialist approach to knowledge have stressed the differences between scientific knowledge and non-scientific knowledge, often leaving us at an impasse. We argue therefore that it is preferable to advance an approach in which knowledge is as at once relational and in a constant process of hybridization. Having opted for and justified this position, we then focus on the - hybrid - knowledge possessed by citizens, users and professionals, by first probing the reasons for the growing involvement of these actors in the production of knowledge and policies. We then ponder the nature and foundations of the complaints and criticisms frequently levelled at participatory mechanisms as to the actual role played in these areas by the knowledge held by 'local' actors. In the end, we identify proposals defended by certain authors to make the interactions of actors from different social worlds more symmetrical. (C) 2012 Policy and Society Associates (APSS).

EVIDENCE FROM HUMAN GENETICS SO ACADEMY OF MANAGEMENT JOURNAL ID INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY-RIGHTS; ABSORPTIVE-CAPACITY; NATIONAL-SURVEY; SCIENCE; INNOVATION; TECHNOLOGY; ORGANIZATIONS; BIOTECHNOLOGY; NETWORKS; MARKET AB Knowledge-based firms seeking competitive advantage often draw on the public knowledge stream (ideas embedded in public commons institutions) as the foundation for private knowledge (ideas firms protect through private intellectual property [IP] institutions). However, understanding of the converse relationship-the impact of private knowledge strategies on public knowledge production-is limited. We examine this question in human genetics, where policy makers debate expanding IP ownership over the human genome. Our difference-in-differences estimates show that gene patents decrease public genetic knowledge, with broader patent scope, private sector ownership, patent thickets, fragmented patent ownership, and a gene's commercial relevance exacerbating their effect.

Special attention is paid to policies supporting the emergence and development of the regional innovation system in this transition process. Regional innovation systems in developing countries have very recently started to be conceptualised as specialized hubs in global innovation and production networks (Asheim, B., Coenen, L, Vang-Lauridsen, J., 2007. Face-to-face, buzz and knowledge bases: socio-spatial implications for learning, innovation and innovation policy.

In: Pietrobello, C., Rabellotti, R. (Eds.), Upgrading and Governance in Clusters and Value Chains in Latin America. Harvard University Press). A specialized hub refers to a node in a global value chain that mainly undertakes one or a few of the activities required for the production and development of a given good or service or serves a particular segment of the global market. In global value chains, firms in developing countries have traditionally been responsible for the lowest added-value activities. However, a few emerging regional innovation systems in developing countries are beginning to challenge this scenario by rapidly upgrading in the value chain. There is, however, still only a poorly developed understanding of how the system of innovation emerges and evolves to support this transition process and what the role of regional innovation policy is in building the regional conditions that support indigenous small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in this transition process. This paper aims at reducing this omission by analyzing the co-evolution of the strategies of indigenous SMEs and the regional innovation system of Bangalore (India). (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.

Devolution and the discipline of social policy: A commentary SO JOURNAL OF SOCIAL POLICY AB Constitutional change offers the opportunity for a major departure in the nature and direction of policy, practices and governance in social policy. This article explores some of the impacts devolution has for the discipline of social policy, suggesting that devolution matters for social policy as a field of research and study, and for the analysis and understanding of developments in UK social policy. It argues that devolution has a number of implications in terms of comparative and transnational social policy, new sites of analysis, the language of social policy, the production of knowledge and the development of new policy communities within the UK. It also signals new perspectives based on evolving welfare subjectivities and around questions of territorial justice. Drawing on discussions about the nature of social policy in the 1970s in particular, suggestions are made as to how new and emerging perspectives within and across the nations of the UK serve to 'decentre' the social policy tradition. In essence, this article seeks to open up a debate for 'theorising' the discipline of social policy through a focus on devolution.

The shifting locus of innovation and value creation away from the "sole firm as innovator" poses important questions about the nature of these resources and the capabilities needed to leverage them for competitive advantage. The purpose of this paper is to describe research into producing design-oriented knowledge, for configuring inter-organizational networks as a means of accessing such resources for innovation. Design/methodology/approach - This exploratory investigation conflates emerging constructs and themes analytically induced from a systematic survey of 142 scholarly and practitioner articles and 45 expert interviews with senior professionals operating in the biopharmaceuticals industry. Findings - The findings identify seven theoretically and empirically grounded technological rules associated with effective inter-organizational networking for innovation. They embody evidence ex post of networking theory and practice. Based on van Aken's seminal work, they comprise design-oriented knowledge to provide a solution architecture of viable action options for managers, a priori, to purposefully design innovation networks. Collectively these rules represent a tentative taxonomy, a means of classifying design principles, to assist managers in navigating their decision-making processes. Originality/value - This study demonstrates the need for explicit design-oriented knowledge for configuring inter-organizational networks. Finally, the implications of the findings for strategic management theory are discussed from a dynamic capabilities view. The significance of a dynamic capability which addresses the renewal of network-specific resources is highlighted.

It is attracting the increased interest of both academic and industrial researchers in developing available knowledge-based techniques in real-time shop floor control applications and providing advanced tools for subsequent industrial applications. In this paper, we provide an overview of research results in the domain of knowledge-based reactive scheduling and some related industrial applications. Since reactive scheduling is a new and not well-defined paradigm, we start by examining some definitions of the problem given by different practitioners in the field. We then examine alternative knowledge-representation technologies and reasoning approaches which, because of their flexibility and reactive capability, are often applied in real-time decision-making environments. This is followed by a review of some reported industrial applications, and a summary on major areas for further research, which gives a picture of the width of the gap between the results of current research and their application in practice. Finally, some major trends apparent in the domain are outlined.

PT J AU Pawson, R Greenhalgh, J Brennan, C Glidewell, E AF Pawson, Ray Greenhalgh, Joanne Brennan, Cathy Glidewell, Elizabeth TI Do reviews of healthcare interventions teach us how to improve healthcare systems? SO SOCIAL SCIENCE & MEDICINE DE United Kingdom; Demand management; Health systems; Realist synthesis; Organisational change; Complexity ID COMPLEX INTERVENTIONS; SERVICE AB Planners, managers and policy makers in modern health services are not without ingenuity they will always try, try and try again. They face deep-seated or 'wicked' problems, which have complex roots in the labyrinthine structures though which healthcare is delivered. Accordingly, the interventions devised to deal with such stubborn problems usually come in the plural. Many different reforms are devised to deal with a particular stumbling block, which may be implemented sequentially, simultaneously or whenever policy fashion or funding dictates. This paper examines this predicament from the perspective of evidence based policy. How might researchers go about reviewing the evidence when they are faced with multiple or indeed competing interventions addressing the same problem? In the face of this plight a rather unheralded form of research synthesis has emerged, namely the 'typological review'. We critically review the fortunes of this strategy. Separating the putative reforms into series of subtypes and producing a scorecard of their outcomes has the unintended effect of divorcing them all from an understanding of how organisations change. A more fruitful approach may lie in a 'theory-driven review' underpinned by an understanding of dynamics of social change in complex organisations. We test this thesis by examining the primary and secondary research on the many interventions designed to tackle a particularly wicked problem, namely the inexorable rise in demand for healthcare.

However, it is not clear what explains this persistence - whether they represent real factors, or if they are artefacts of approaches used to study EBP. Based on an updated review, this paper analyses this literature to explain persistent barriers and facilitators. We critically describe the literature in terms of its theoretical underpinnings, definitions of 'evidence', methods, and underlying assumptions of research in the field, and aim to illuminate the EBP discourse by comparison with approaches from other fields. Much of the research in this area is theoretically naive, focusing primarily on the uptake of research evidence as opposed to evidence defined more broadly, and privileging academics' research priorities over those of policymakers. Little empirical data analysing the processes or impact of evidence use in policy is available to inform researchers or decision-makers. EBP research often assumes that policymakers do not use evidence and that more evidence - meaning research evidence - use would benefit policymakers and populations. We argue that these assumptions are unsupported, biasing much of EBP research. The agenda of 'getting evidence into policy' has side-lined the empirical description and analysis of how research and policy actually interact in vivo. Rather than asking how research evidence can be made more influential, academics should aim to understand what influences and constitutes policy, and produce more critically and theoretically informed studies of decision-making. We question the main assumptions made by EBP researchers, explore the implications of doing so, and propose new directions for EBP research, and health policy.

However, management and remediation of contaminated properties are still limited in terms of regulation and direction, especially in relation to public and environmental health practice. Therefore, this review provides an update on the hazards and health effects associated with CDLs, with a specific look at the management of these labs from an Australian perspective. Particularly, the paper attempts to describe the policy landscape for management of CDLs, and identifies current gaps and how further research may be utilised to advance understanding and management of CDLs and inform public health policies. The paper highlights a significant lack of evidence-based policies and guidelines to guide regulatory authority including environmental health officers in Australia. Only recently, the national Clandestine Drug Laboratory Guidelines were developed to assist relevant authority and specialists manage and carry out investigations and remediation of contaminated sites. However, only three states have developed state-based guidelines, some of which are inadequate to meet environmental health requirements. The review recommends well-needed inter-sectoral collaborations and further research to provide an evidence base for the development of robust policies and standard operating procedures for safe and effective environmental health management and remediation of CDLs.

This change was made following an evidence-based policy review by the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs (SaBTO). The review concluded that the available evidence supported the introduction of a 12-month fixed period deferral and that the risks associated with a 12-month deferral of MSM were equivalent to a permanent deferral. The permanent deferral for MSM was introduced in 1985 in response to the spread of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) caused by HIV. The change was supported by new data on the level of compliance with the permanent deferral, advances in the testing and processing of donated blood, changes in the epidemiology of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and improved scientific knowledge. This review discusses how the decision to change the deferral period was reached and highlights some of the remaining issues relating to this contentious matter.

Media advocacy is the process of disseminating information through the communications media where the aim is to effect: action, such as a change of policy, or to alter the public's view of an issue. Discussion focuses on: 1) the importance of, and methods for, collecting and communicating evidence and information to make it clear and usable for legislators, the media, and the public; and 2) the role of earned and paid media in advancing tobacco control issues. The discussion is made within the context of a specific advocacy example; in this case the 2010 campaign to increase the tobacco tax in Mexico.

Reviews that answer these questions adopt a mixed methods approach and draw on a range of study types. Answering the 'what works' and 'what doesn't' questions means drawing on effectiveness studies, conducted to standards of high-quality impact evaluation. But in formulating answers to the 'when' and 'why' questions requires a broader range of evidence from both quantitative and qualitative research. Based on a review of the methodological literature in this field and the experience of 3ie's systematic reviews program, this article provides an outline of how a theory-based approach to systematic reviews, including appropriate quantitative and qualitative evidence, can be operationalised. We propose an approach based on three principles: (1) develop a program theory for the intervention; (2) adopt a mixed methods approach and include a broader range of evidence; and (3) maintain the rigour and transparency that characterise systematic reviews. The approach translates into two broad options. Effectiveness plus reviews focus on providing a detailed causal chain analysis by drawing on a program theory and additional data collection on context and intervention implementation. And effectiveness plus with a parallel review component, which is designed to answer specific research questions related to effectiveness, adopts separate inclusion criteria, reflecting the type of studies appropriate for answering those questions.

Design/methodology/approach - This study analyzes Commissioner Braidwood's eight findings from the first report regarding the medical implications of the use of TASER devices by comparing those findings to the body of scientific, medical, and technical literature on the physiological effects of TASER technology. Additionally, this study reviews the potential ramifications of the Commissioner's recommendations regarding the use of TASER devices in both reports. Findings - Evidence from the existing literature does not support the Commission's findings regarding the medical risks of the use of TASER technology. Recommendations to restrict the use of TASER devices are unlikely to reduce arrest-related deaths, but they are likely to result in increased injuries to officers and suspects. Other recommendations, including training standards, testing requirements, reporting requirements, medical assistance, and research and review, are consistent with other reviews on the use of TASER technology and are necessary and appropriate to restore public confidence in police use-of-force. Originality/value - The Braidwood Commission recommendations have had an immediate impact on the policies of several police agencies in Canada, including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but this study is the first critically to review whether those recommendations constitute formulation of sound evidence-based public policy.

We assess the extent to which developments in academic research and in everyday appraisal practices have informed to one another. While there are signs that policy appraisal research is moving away from the 'technical - rational model' of appraisal, both research and practice remain heavily informed by it. The review reveals that research and practice are interacting in subtle ways, but these fall well short of what is sought by advocates of more reflexive approaches. We systematically examine the exact pattern of research - practice interaction depicted in the literature and explore how this may change in the future.

In this paper we discuss whether the Cochrane standard for systematic reviews of healthcare interventions is appropriate for social research. We examine the formal criteria of the Cochrane Collaboration for including particular study designs and search the Cochrane Library to provide quantitative evidence on the de facto standard of actual Cochrane reviews. By identifying the sample of Cochrane reviews that consider observational designs, we are able to conclude that the majority of reviews appears limited to considering randomised controlled trials only. Because recent studies have delineated conditions for observational studies in social research to produce valid evidence, we argue that an inclusive approach is essential for truly evidence-based policy and practice in regard to social interventions.

However, its implementation has not been straightforward. The objectives of this systematic review were to synthesise empirical evidence on the use of research evidence by public health decision makers in settings with universal health care systems. Methods: To locate eligible studies, 13 bibliographic databases were screened, organisational websites were scanned, key informants were contacted and bibliographies of included studies were scrutinised. Two reviewers independently assessed studies for inclusion, extracted data and assessed methodological quality. Data were synthesised as a narrative review. Findings: 18 studies were included: 15 qualitative studies, and three surveys. Their methodological quality was mixed. They were set in a range of country and decision making settings. Study participants included 1063 public health decision makers, 72 researchers, and 174 with overlapping roles. Decision making processes varied widely between settings, and were viewed differently by key players. A range of research evidence was accessed. However, there was no reliable evidence on the extent of its use. Its impact was often indirect, competing with other influences. Barriers to the use of research evidence included: decision makers' perceptions of research evidence; the gulf between researchers and decision makers; the culture of decision making; competing influences on decision making; and practical constraints. Suggested (but largely untested) ways of overcoming these barriers included: research targeted at the needs of decision makers; research clearly highlighting key messages; and capacity building. There was little evidence on the role of research evidence in decision making to reduce inequalities. Conclusions: To more effectively implement research informed public health policy, action is required by decision makers and researchers to address the barriers identified in this systematic review. There is an urgent need for evidence to support the use of research evidence to inform public health decision making to reduce inequalities.

It is therefore important for scientists to understand this process in order to influence it more effectively. Similarly, policymakers need to understand the complexities of the scientific process to improve their interaction with the scientific sphere. This literature review addresses those factors that influence the uptake of scientific evidence into policymaking, the barriers to using science in policymaking, as well as recommendations for improved science policymaking interaction. A visual diagram of the gears of a car is used to convey the message of the complexities around the engagement between science and policymaking. It is concluded that the issue of evidence-based policymaking remains unresolved and questions for future research on the science policy interface are raised.

Moreover, many policies seem to fall short of, or directly contradict what the available 'evidence' suggests is required. This is a synthesis paper bringing together literature from the fields of political science, geography, sociology and science and technology studies to outline some of the obscurities relating to the use of scientific evidence in environmental decision-making. In this paper, we suggest that an exploration of three key inter-related issues is necessary to develop a richer understanding of why evidence and policy interact as they do. These are the nature of evidence itself; the normative, moral or ethical 'politics' of policy-making; and the operation of power in the policy process. Our primary goal is to bring various literatures together to better conceptualise the evidence-policy relationship. In so doing, we outline specific challenges for knowledge producers who set research priorities, and design and direct research projects.

In Thailand, there have been concerted efforts to promote evidence-based policy making, including the introduction of economic, appraisals within health technology assessment (HTA). This paper reviews the experience of this lower middle-income country, with an emphasis on the creation of the Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program (HITAP), including its mission, management structures and activities. Over the past 3 decades, several HTA programmes were implemented in Thailand but not sustained or developed further into a national institute. As a response to increasing demands for HTA evidence including CEA information, the HITAP was created in 2007 as an affiliate unit of a semi-autonomous research arm of the Ministry Of Public Health. An advantage of this HTA programme over previous initiatives was that it was hosted by a research institute with long-term experience in conducting health systems and policy research and capacity building of its research staff, and excellent research and policy networks. To deal with existing impediments to conducting health economics research, the main strategies of the HITAP were carefully devised to include not only capacity strengthening of its researchers and administrative staff, but also the development of essential elements for the country's health economic evaluation methodology. These included, for example, methodological guidelines, standard protocols and benchmarks for resource allocation, many of which have been adopted by national policy-making bodies including the three major public health insurance plans. Networks and collaborations with domestic and foreign institutes have been sought as a means of resource mobilization and exchange. Although the HITAP is well financed by a number of government agencies and international organizations, the programme is vulnerable to shortages of qualified research staff, as most staff work on a part-time or temporary basis. To enhance the utilization of its research findings by policy makers, practitioners and consumers, the HITAP has adopted the principles of technical excellence, policy relevance, transparency, effective communication and participation of key stakeholders. These principles have been translated into good practice at every step of HTA management. In 2007 and 2008, the HITAP carried out assessments of a wide range of health products, medical procedures and public health initiatives. Although CEA and other economic evaluation approaches were employed in these studies, the tools and underlying efficiency goal were considered inadequate to provide complete information for prioritization. As suggested by official stakeholders, some of the projects investigated broader issues of management, feasibility, performance and socio-political implications of interventions. As yet, it is unclear what role HITAP research and associated recommendations have played in policy decisions. It is hoped that the lessons drawn on the creation of the HITAP and its experience during the first 2 years, as well as information on its main strategies and management structures, may be helpful for other resource-constrained countries when considering how best to strengthen their capacity to conduct economic appraisals of health technologies and interventions.

Its purpose is to (a) illuminate the changing relationship between education research and policy, and (b) to clarify the different ways in which that relationship is understood. Its overarching purpose is to enable the education research community to locate current debates about research and policy within historical and theoretical frames of reference, and to enable researchers to locate themselves and their work in this contested area. The review is structured in three main sections. The first explores the shifting meanings of research and policy, with attention to the ways in which particular definitions of research produce consequences for the ways in which policy is understood, and vice versa. From these discussions, which include differences between applied, basic and strategic research, and between 'policy science' and 'policy scholarship', the authors offer a typology of education research-policy relations. The second section explores the meanings of research and policy in historical context, and examines the growth of research in education from the post-war years to the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the key themes in the relationship are introduced, and the historical origins of some current controversies are traced and explored. The third section looks at the research-policy relationship in the current context, with attention to the growth of evidence-informed policy-making, and to major disputes and controversies about research quality and methodologies. Throughout the review the focus is largely on education research in England, but comparative points, drawn from the history and contemporary experience of the Centre for Educational Sociology (CES), are made about research-policy relations in Scotland, as are wider points about international developments.

Accordingly, there has been a rapid increase in the number of economic evaluations of communicable disease health programmes in developing countries, as there is a need to implement evidence-based policy decisions. However, given the prohibitive cost of many economic evaluations in low-income countries, interest has also been generated in pooling data and results of previously published studies. Yet, our review demonstrated that very few published economic evaluations have been performed during 1984-1997 (n = 107). Certain diseases and geographical areas have also been neglected. Of those studies published, appropriate analytic techniques have been inconsistently applied. In particular, there are four immediate concerns: the narrow perspective taken-dominance of the health care provider viewpoint and reliance on intermediate outcomes measures; bias-some costs were excluded from estimates; the lack of transparency-sources of data not identified; and the absence of a critical examination of findings-many papers failed to perform a sensitivity analysis. The usefulness of previously published economic evaluations to help make resource allocation choices on an individual basis and, therefore, for the purpose of international comparisons, pooling or meta-analysis, has to be questioned in light of the results from this study.

Discussion: This essay reviews the rationale for evidence-informed policy-making by examining some of the common claims made about the aims and practices of this perspective on public policy. Supplementing the existing justifications for evidence-based policy making, we argue in favor of a greater inclusion of research evidence in the policy process but in a structured fashion, based on methodological considerations. In this respect, we present an overview of the intricate relation between policy questions and appropriate research designs. Summary: By closely examining the relation between research questions and research designs, we claim that the usual points of disagreement are mitigated. For instance, when focusing on the variety of research designs that can answer a range of policy questions, the common critical claim about 'RCT-based policy-making' seems to lose some, if not all of its grip.

As noted by recent scholarship, progress toward evidence-informed policy making requires both improving the supply of research that is reliable, timely, and relevant to the policy process and promoting demand and support for this information among decision makers. This article presents a case study of the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative, which is working in a growing number of state and local governments to build systems that bring rigorous evidence on "what works" into their budget processes and to support its use in resource allocation decisions. The initiative's experience to date is promising, although creating lasting and dynamic evidence-based policy-making systems requires a long-term commitment by both researchers and policy makers.

TI Toward More "Evidence-Informed" Policy Making? SO PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION REVIEW AB The quality of public decision making depends significantly on the quality of analysis and advice provided through public organizations. Champions of "evidence-informed" policy making claim that rigorous evaluation practices can significantly improve attainment of cost-effective outcomes. After decades of experience, performance information is more sophisticated, but evaluation practices and capabilities vary enormously. Public agencies gather and process vast amounts of information, but there has been little analysis of how this information is actually utilized for policy and program improvement. This article examines how government agencies use evidence about policy and program effectiveness, with attention to four themes: ( 1) the prospects for improving "evidence-informed" policy making, ( 2) the diversity of practices concerning evidence utilization and evaluation across types of public agencies and policy arenas, ( 3) recent attempts to "institutionalize" evaluation as a core feature of policy development and budget approval, and ( 4) the relationships between public agencies and nongovernmental sources of expertise.

Oladoyin Shukla, Abhay Ghaffar, Abdul Whitworth, Jimmy TI Strengthening capacity to apply health research evidence in policy making: experience from four countries SO HEALTH POLICY AND PLANNING AB Increasing the use of evidence in policy making means strengthening capacity on both the supply and demand sides of evidence production. However, little experience of strengthening the capacity of policy makers in low- and middle- income countries has been published to date. We describe the experiences of five projects (in Bangladesh, Gambia, India and Nigeria), where collaborative teams of researchers and policy makers/policy influencers worked to strengthen policy maker capacity to increase the use of evidence in policy. Activities were focused on three (interlinked) levels of capacity building: individual, organizational and, occasionally, institutional. Interventions included increasing access to research/data, promoting frequent interactions between researchers and members of the policy communities, and increasing the receptivity towards research/data in policy making or policy-implementing organizations. Teams were successful in building the capacity of individuals to access, understand and use evidence/data. Strengthening organizational capacity generally involved support to infrastructure (e.g. through information technology resources) and was also deemed to be successful. There was less appetite to address the need to strengthen institutional capacity-although this was acknowledged to be fundamental to promoting sustainable use of evidence, it was also recognized as requiring resources, legitimacy and regulatory support from policy makers. Evaluation across the three spheres of capacity building was made more challenging by the lack of agreed upon evaluation frameworks. In this article, we propose a new framework for assessing the impact of capacity strengthening activities to promote the use of evidence/data in policy making. Our evaluation concluded that strengthening the capacity of individuals and organizations is an important but likely insufficient step in ensuring the use of evidence/data in policy-cycles. Sustainability of evidence-informed policy making requires strengthening institutional capacity, as well as understanding and addressing the political environment, and particularly the incentives facing policy makers that supports the use of evidence in policy cycles.

Chen, Yue Little, Julian TI Bridging the gap between science and policy: an international survey of scientists and policy makers in China and Canada SO IMPLEMENTATION SCIENCE AB Background: Bridging the gap between science and policy is an important task in evidence-informed policy making. The objective of this study is to prioritize ways to bridge the gap. Methods: The study was based on an online survey of high-ranking scientists and policy makers who have a senior position in universities and governments in the health sector in China and Canada. The sampling frame comprised of universities with schools of public health and medicine and various levels of government in health and public health. Participants included university presidents and professors, and government deputy ministers, directors general and directors working in the health field. Fourteen strategies were presented to the participants for ranking as current ways and ideal ways in the future to bridge the gap between science and policy. Results: Over a 3-month survey period, there were 121 participants in China and 86 in Canada with response rates of 30.0 and 15.9 %, respectively. The top strategies selected by respondents included focus on policy (conducting research that focuses on policy questions), science-policy forums, and policy briefs, both as current ways and ideal ways to bridge the gap between science and policy. Conferences were considered a priority strategy as a current way, but not an ideal way in the future. Canadian participants were more in favor of using information technology (web-based portals and email updates) than their Chinese counterparts. Among Canadian participants, two strategies that were ranked low as current ways (collaboration in study design and collaboration in analysis) became a priority as ideal ways. This could signal a change in thinking in shifting the focus from the "back end" or "downstream" (knowledge dissemination) of the knowledge transfer process to the "front end" or "upstream" (knowledge generation). Conclusions: Our international study has confirmed a number of previously reported priority strategies to bridge the gap between science and policy. More importantly, our study has contributed to the future work on evidence-based policy making by comparing the responses from China and Canada and the current and ideal way for the future. Our study shows that the concept and strategies of bridging the gap between science and policy are not static but varying in space and evolving over time.

El-Jardali, Fadi Ghaffar, Abdul TI Incorporating research evidence into decision-making processes: researcher and decision-maker perceptions from five low- and middle-income countries SO HEALTH RESEARCH POLICY AND SYSTEMS AB Background: The 'Sponsoring National Processes for Evidence-Informed Policy Making in the Health Sector of Developing Countries' program was launched by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, WHO, in July 2008. The program aimed to catalyse the use of evidence generated through health policy and systems research in policymaking processes through (1) promoting researchers and policy advocates to present their evidence in a manner that is easy for policymakers to understand and use, (2) creating mechanisms to spur the demand for and application of research evidence in policymaking, and (3) increased interaction between researchers, policy advocates, and policymakers. Grants ran for three years and five projects were supported in Argentina, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Nigeria and Zambia. This paper seeks to understand why projects in some settings were perceived by the key stakeholders involved to have made progress towards their goals, whereas others were perceived to have not done so well. Additionally, by comparing experiences across five countries, we seek to illustrate general learnings to inform future evidence-to-policy efforts in low-and middle-income countries. Methods: We adopted the theory of knowledge translation developed by Jacobson et al. (J Health Serv Res Policy 8(2):94-9, 2003) as a framing device to reflect on project experiences across the five cases. Using data from the projects' external evaluation reports, which included information from semi-structured interviews and quantitative evaluation surveys of those involved in projects, and supplemented by information from the projects' individual technical reports, we applied the theoretical framework with a partially grounded approach to analyse each of the cases and make comparisons. Results and conclusion: There was wide variation across projects in the type of activities carried out as well as their intensity. Based on our findings, we can conclude that projects perceived as having made progress towards their goals were characterized by the coming together of a number of domains identified by the theory. The domains of Jacobson's theoretical framework, initially developed for high-income settings, are of relevance to the low-and middle-income country context, but may need modification to be fully applicable to these settings. Specifically, the relative fragility of institutions and the concomitantly more significant role of individual leaders point to the need to look at leadership as an additional domain influencing the evidence-to-policy process.

TI Do Canadian university students in Political Science and Public Administration learn to perform critical appraisal? SO CANADIAN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION-ADMINISTRATION PUBLIQUE DU CANADA AB The ability to critically appraise empirical studies of any type is a prerequisite to evidence-informed policy making. We scanned the syllabi of all Canadian university undergraduate and graduate programs in public affairs, public administration, public policy and political science. Our findings suggest that evidence-informed policy is not yet institutionalized in most public administration and political science training curricula. We conducted a systematic review of prospective experimental and quasi-experimental studies examining the effect of university courses aimed at training social sciences students in critical appraisal, but did not find such a study.

The primary outcome variable was the mean percentage of pre-post improvement on the knowledge test. In the treatment group, the mean percentage of pre-post improvement to the knowledge test was 36.9% (SD 27.5), compared to 11.3% (SD 19.1) in the control group composed of students exposed to the traditional graduate-level research methodology course in Political Science.

TI Models and visions of science-policy interaction: Remarks from a Delphi study in Italy SO SCIENCE AND PUBLIC POLICY AB In recent decades, many disciplines have dealt with the relationship between scientific research and policy-making, and many different models for science-policy interactions have been proposed. This paper aims to investigate the models of science-policy interaction implicitly or explicitly adopted by stakeholders, by means of a Delphi study performed with Italian researchers, politicians, doctors and journalists. The study was developed within the framework of the European project on Research into Policy to Enhance Physical Activity, which aimed to improve evidence-informed policy-making using the field of physical activity as the case study. Our results show the persistence of the traditional linear model and how it coexists with subsequent models in the same individual visions.

This editorial brings together and builds on previous Knowledge Translation (KT) frameworks and theories to present a simple, yet, holistic approach for promoting evidence-informed policies. The proposed conceptual framework is characterized by its impact-oriented approach and its view of KT as a continuum from the evidence synthesis stage to uptake and evaluation, while highlighting capacity and resource requirement at every step. A practical example is given to guide readers through the different steps of the framework. With a growing interest in strengthening evidence-informed policy-making, there is a need to continuously develop theories to understand and improve the science of KT and its implementation within the field of policy-making.

First, I outline contemporary conceptualisations of how power operates in society; second,! spotlight the implications of power inequalities for how evidence is used by policy makers (and present the policy 'agora'; a discursively controlled paradigm of ideology and epistemology which serves to distinguish between the types of evidence that policy makers will and won't engage with); third, I then define what I consider as evidence 'misuse'; before finishing with an analysis of why evidence misuse materialises and how its enactment might be minimised.

TI A Transparent Process for "Evidence-Informed" Policy Making SO CONSERVATION LETTERS AB Political institutions are keen to use the best available scientific knowledge in decision-making. For environmental policy, relevant scientific evidence can be complex and extensive, so expert judgment is frequently relied upon, without clear links to the evidence itself. We propose a new transparent process for incorporating research evidence into policy decisions, involving independent synopsis of evidence relating to all possible policy options combined with expert evaluation of what the evidence means for specific policy questions. We illustrate the process using reforms of the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy currently being negotiated. Under the reform proposals, 30% of direct payments to farmers will become conditional upon three "compulsory greening measures." Independently, we compiled and evaluated experimental evidence for the effects of 85 interventions to protect wildlife on northern European farmland, 12 of which correspond to aspects of the compulsory greening measures. Our evaluation clearly indicates evidence of consistent wildlife benefits for some, but not all, of the greening measures. The process of evidence synopsis with expert evaluation has three advantages over existing efforts to incorporate evidence into policy decisions: it provides a clear evidence audit trail, allows rapid response to new policy contexts, and clarifies sources of uncertainty.

TI Political and Institutional Influences on the Use of Evidence in Public Health Policy. A Systematic Review SO PLOS ONE AB Background: There is increasing recognition that the development of evidence-informed health policy is not only a technical problem of knowledge exchange or translation, but also a political challenge. Yet, while political scientists have long considered the nature of political systems, the role of institutional structures, and the political contestation of policy issues as central to understanding policy decisions, these issues remain largely unexplored by scholars of evidence-informed policy making. Methods: We conducted a systematic review of empirical studies that examined the influence of key features of political systems and institutional mechanisms on evidence use, and contextual factors that may contribute to the politicisation of health evidence. Eligible studies were identified through searches of seven health and social sciences databases, websites of relevant organisations, the British Library database, and manual searches of academic journals. Relevant findings were extracted using a uniform data extraction tool and synthesised by narrative review. Findings: 56 studies were selected for inclusion. Relevant political and institutional aspects affecting the use of health evidence included the level of state centralisation and democratisation, the influence of external donors and organisations, the organisation and function of bureaucracies, and the framing of evidence in relation to social norms and values. However, our understanding of such influences remains piecemeal given the limited number of empirical analyses on this subject, the paucity of comparative works, and the limited consideration of political and institutional theory in these studies. Conclusions: This review highlights the need for a more explicit engagement with the political and institutional factors affecting the use of health evidence in decision-making. A more nuanced understanding of evidence use in health policy making requires both additional empirical studies of evidence use, and an engagement with theories and approaches beyond the current remit of public health or knowledge utilisation studies.

Ghaffar, Abdul TI Embedding health policy and systems research into decision-making processes in low- and middle-income countries SO HEALTH RESEARCH POLICY AND SYSTEMS AB Attention is increasingly directed to bridging the gap between the production of knowledge and its use for health decision-making in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). An important and underdeveloped area of health policy and systems research (HPSR) is the organization of this process. Drawing from an interdisciplinary conception of embeddedness, a literature review was conducted to identify examples of embedded HPSR used to inform decision-making in LMICs. The results of the literature review were organized according to the World Health Organization's Building Blocks Framework. Next, a conceptual model was created to illustrate the arrangement of organizations that produce embedded HPSR and the characteristics that facilitate its uptake into the arena of decision-making. We found that multiple forces converge to create context-specific pathways through which evidence enters into decision-making. Depending on the decision under consideration, the literature indicates that decision-makers may call upon an intricate combination of actors for sourcing HPSR. While proximity to decision-making does have advantages, it is not the position of the organization within the network, but rather the qualities the organization possesses, that enable it to be embedded. Our findings suggest that four qualities influence embeddedness: reputation, capacity, quality of connections to decision-makers, and quantity of connections to decision-makers and others. In addition to this, the policy environment (e.g. the presence of legislation governing the use of HPSR, presence of strong civil society, etc.) strongly influences uptake. Through this conceptual model, we can understand which conditions are likely to enhance uptake of HPSR in LMIC health systems. This raises several important considerations for decision-makers and researchers about the arrangement and interaction of evidence-generating organizations in health systems.

The objectives of this study were to assess stakeholders' views on strengths, challenges and opportunities in medicines information for the basis of the strategy. Methods: Interviews among stakeholder representatives (n = 28) from patient organizations, universities, pharmacies, and professional associations in medicine, pharmacy and nursing were conducted in 2011. Interview memos were thematically content-analysed. The draft strategy was finalized through two public hearings and a public consultation. Results: Stakeholders highlighted the need to increase cooperation and coordination in medicines information. The existence of numerous quality- and evidence-based medicines information sources was identified as a strength; although the stakeholders were concerned about the fragmented and unequal access to them. The strengthening of the role of health care professionals in communicating about medicines was seen as an opportunity, but its realization requires improvements in basic and continuing education. Furthermore, the stakeholders emphasized the importance of uniform medicines information regardless of source. Conclusions: Stakeholders identified multiple strengths, challenges and opportunities in medicines information that were fundamental to developing the national medicines information strategy. An inventory of stakeholder perspectives can be recommended as a tool to support decision-making in pharmaceutical policy. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.

Our aim was to develop a model in order to describe the key features and intended effects of deliberative dialogues used as a KTE strategy and to understand how deliberative dialogues can support evidence-informed policymaking. By using critical interpretive synthesis, we identified 17 papers representing four fields of enquiry and integrated our findings into a model. The key features described in the model are: 1) an appropriate (i.e., conducive to the particular dialogue) meeting environment; 2) an appropriate mix of participants; and, 3) an appropriate use of research evidence. These features combine to create three types of intended effects: 1) short-term individual-level; 3) medium-term community/organizational-level; and, 3) long-term system-level. The concept of capacity building helps to explain the relationship between features and effects. The model is a useful contribution to the KTE field because it is a practical tool that could be used to guide the development and evaluation of deliberative dialogues in order to understand more about achieving particular outcomes in relation to specific issues or contexts.

While models have been put forward to explain this activity, this paper argues that such models are flawed and fail to fully address those complexities affecting the successful realisation of knowledge adoption efforts. Existing frameworks are examined, critiqued and an alternative, sociologically based approach presented. It is argued that this alternative conceptualisation provides a more effective account of the knowledge adoption process. The paper illustrates how this model has been tested and examines its implications for both research impact and evidence-informed policy making.

The present study questioned the extent to which randomized controlled trials (RCTs)generally seen as the gold standard of scientific researchare known and consulted by policy analysts in ministerial settings. Using cross-sectional data collected in 17 ministries in Quebec (Canada), our study showed that fairly high levels of policy analysts report never having heard of RCTs, thus possibly hindering effective communication of scientific results to relevant policy makers. Statistical analyses reveal the importance of cognitive factors in explaining both phenomena.

This article discusses the relationships between implementation research and knowledge translation and identifies the role of implementation research in the design and execution of evidence-informed policy. After a discussion of the benefits and synergies needed to translate implementation research into action, the article discusses how implementation research can be used along the entire continuum of the use of evidence to inform policy. It provides specific examples of the use of implementation research in national level programmes by looking at the scale up of zinc for the treatment of childhood diarrhoea in Bangladesh and the scaling up of malaria treatment in Burkina Faso. A number of tested strategies to support the transfer of implementation research results into policy-making are provided to help meet the standards that are increasingly expected from evidence-informed policy-making practices.

The dynamic effects of ownership, receptivity and values on collaborative evidence-informed policy making SO EVIDENCE & POLICY AB This paper explores questions of ownership of and receptivity to research-based evidence and, in combination with often competing values, their effect on collaborative evidence-informed policy making (EIPM).We propose that these issues generate a 'dynamo' of push-pull factors for policy makers, researchers and research managers.Through the process of producing and managing new knowledge in collaborative EIPM efforts, these factors shape different 'realities'. We argue that these help to prevent, break, distort or facilitate the conceptual cycle of EIPM. The paper sets out ideas for mapping ownership, receptivity and values and their dynamic effects, drawn from actor network theory, complexity theory and the Competing Values Framework. In conclusion, it suggests that engagement with and development of policy making as a form of emergent ordering may provide ways for more effective EIPM.

However, moves towards a more 'realistic' position of evidence-informed policy making risk conflating prescription with description and undermining a normative vision of better policy making. This article argues that we need to review the ideas that underpin our thinking about evidence-based policy making, and move beyond the territory of instrumental rationality to a position founded upon two intellectual pillars: our developing knowledge about complex adaptive systems; and ideas from a pragmatist philosophical position - especially those of John Dewey - about social scientific knowledge and its role in guiding action to address social problems. This leads us to a conception of 'intelligent policy making' in which the notion of policy learning is central.

Systematic reviewing is increasingly being adopted to address questions in complex social policy areas, but the methodological development lags behind. Drawing on the experience of undertaking three systematic reviews of housing related topics, as part of a project designed to empirically test the transfer of systematic review methods to social policy and social care, this paper reflects on the use of the systematic review methods in housing research and considers how our experience accords with recent methodological development of reviewing in other areas. The paper first examines wider methodological developments occurring during the course of the three-year project, before considering changing review practices in housing studies. It then goes on to examine the key methodological challenges that remain unresolved, in particular: searching for literature, quality appraising studies, interpreting old research against shifting contextual factors, and providing an actual synthesis of diverse material. It calls for a more thoughtful approach to the method and more careful consideration of when systematic reviews may be appropriate.

- Syitä tieteellisen tiedon käytön ongelmiin päätöksenteossa: 1) Tiede ei anna yksiselitteisiä vastauksia. 2) Tieteellinen tieto politisoituu. 3) Tutkimustieto sosiaalisista kysymyksistä on aina epävarmaa. 4) Tiede ei voi ratkaista arvokysymyksiä.
- Tiedon rooli eri päätöksenteon vaiheissa: 1) Tutkimus nostaa sosiaalisia kysymyksiä keskusteluun. 2) Kysymys politisoituu, ja puolueet ja etujärjestöt muodostavat siitä kantansa. 3) Eduskunta alkaa päästä yhteisymmärrykseen asiasta, ja hallitus tuottaa lakiesityksen päätettäväksi. Valiokunnissa alkaa tietointensiivisin vaihe, kun asiaan perehdytään. 4) Varsinainen päätöksenteko on yleensä äänestys, jossa poliittiset näkökulmat ohittavat täysin tutkimustiedon. 5) Tehdyn päätöksen puolustelu (hallitus) tai haukkuminen (oppositio) valikoidun tutkimustiedon perusteella.
- Kansanedustajat käyttävät ja tarvitsevat sekä teoreettista, abstraktia tutkimustietoa asioiden kehittämiseen että käytännöllistä ja henkilösuhteisiin liittyvää tietoa konkreettisten päivänpolttavien ongelmien ratkaisemiseen.

Se perustuu uskomusten ja arvojen kuvaamiseen, ja tällainen duaalimalli esiintyy kaikissa merkittävissä päätösteorioissa.
- Malli on erityisen hyödyllinen, jos päätös vaatii paljon pohdintaa ja keskustelua. Tyypillisesti näin käy, kun päätöksen seuraukset ovat tärkeät, asiassa on paljon epävarmuutta tai ristiriitaisia tavoitteita, lukuisia sidosryhmiä, päätöstilanne on monimutkainen, tai vastuun ottaminen korostuu. Tällaisissa tilanteissa tutkimustieto on lähes aina tärkeää, mutta sitä on valitettavan huonosti saatavilla halutussa muodossa.
- This article is about personal and policy decisions that require a significant amount of deliberation because the decision problem involves one or several of the features below:
- important consequences
- conflicting objectives
- multiple stakeholders
- complexity of the decision environment
- need for accountability
- For these types of decisions, science almost always does or should play a role. Unfortunately, scientific information is rarely accessible in a format useful for decision making.

- Artikkeli esittelee Future Earthin keskeiset menetelmät. Avoimuus on tärkeää koska etukäteen ei voi tietää mistä ja miten tulee tärkeää tietoa. Ratkaisulähtöisyys on tärkeää jotta keskitytään oikeisiin asioihin. Sitä on kuitenkin laajennettava systeemitarkasteluksi ja huomioitava erilaiset maailmankuvat ja arvot. Yhteistyötä tarvitaan päättäjien tutkijoiden ja sidosryhmien kesken. Transdisciplinarity on tärkeää. Tarvitaan integraatiota kolmeen suuntaan. Tieteenalojen kesken, alueellisesti ja sektoreiden kesken. Co-creation = co-design + co-production + co-dissemination.
- Tieteen näkökulmasta rahoittajien ja päättäjien mukaanottaminen on sekä haaste että hieno mahdollisuus saada aikaan sopivia rakenteita tiedon virtaamiselle. Onnistuminen edellyttää, että pystytään ratkaisemaan monia haasteita. Pitää kehittää uusia taitoja ja prosesseja uudenlaisen tietotyön tekemiseen. Pitää voittaa muutosvastarinta. Pitää selkeyttää rooleja ja vastuita mm. tieteellisen riippumattomuuden varmistamiseksi. Pitää kehittää yhteisiä rakenteita estämään siiloutumista. Pitää kehittää tukirakenteita, resursseja ja palkitsemisjärjestelmiä, jotka ohjaavat oikeaan suuntaan. Pitää poistaa epätasapuolisia ja epätasa-arvoisia rakenteita, jotka estävät kehitystä.
- From the science perspective, involving funders and science policy makers presents challenges as well as great opportunities for providing the necessary institutional framework. The challenges, that must be met, involve:
- Develop new processes and skills: Integration requires strong process-oriented skills (inter-personal, communication and facilitation), as well as organizational and managerial competencies, that are not always available and may require professional support or training. Educational institutions as well as funding agencies will play an important role in this.
- Deal with inertia to change: Integration also requires critical reflection on the role of science in global sustainability and on the limitations of doing business-as-usual research. This, in turn, requires an openness to change. Neither process is necessarily easy or comfortable for those involved.
- Clarify roles, responsibilities and rules of engagement: Integration is research coordination, which spans the entire research process. Different actors will have different levels and forms of involvement in different parts of the process. This requires clarity about roles and responsibilities, about who makes decisions when, and about how to appropriately safeguard scientific integrity and relevant standards of quality.
- Establish integrated institutions: The disciplinary-based practices and structures of existing educational and research systems are not conducive to integrated efforts, and will need to be supplemented with new, integrated structures.
- Develop support systems: The same is true for typical academic reward and career advancement systems, as well funding mechanisms — including selection and evaluation procedures. Integration calls for a critical review of such systems.
- Remove persistent inequalities: In terms of access to power and resources, as well as research capacities, the world of science is plagued by persistent inequalities that pose a fundamental challenge to the deeper levels of collaboration that integration calls for.

- Brandt ja työryhmä (2013) tekivät laajan katsauksen tieteidenväliseen kestävän kehityksen tutkimuksessa. Tieteidenvälisyydellä tarkoitetaan tässä tutkimusta, joka on sekä vahvasti eri tieteenaloja yhdistelevää että eri sidosryhmiä osallistavaa (englanniksi transdisciplinary). Artikkeli tunnistaa viisi haastetta: tieteidenvälisyys lisääntyy, mutta viitekehykset ovat epäyhtenäiset; käytetyt menetelmät eivät ole johdonmukaisia; tieteidenväliset parhaan käytännöt eivät toteudu julkaistuissa artikkeleissa; sidosryhmille välitetään tietoa mutta todellinen voimaannuttaminen harvoin toteutuu; tieteidenvälisellä tutkimuksella on vaikea saada kovaa tieteellistä vaikutusta. Yhtäköyttä-hankkeessa pyritään vastaamaan juuri näihin haasteisiin.

Nature 468, 1029–1031 (23 December 2010) [http:/dx.doi.org/10.1038/4681029a]  Stirling (2010) puolustaa moniäänistä ehdollista päätöstukea, koska usein tutkimustieto ei riitä antamaan yksiselitteisiä vastauksia vaikka sellaisiin olisi poliittista painetta. Artikkeli analysoi todennäköisyyksien ja mahdollisuuksien ulottuvuuksissa erilaisia epävarmuuden lajeja. Helpoin on riski. Siinä epävarmuudet ovat pieniä. Epäselvyys (ongelmalliset mahdollisuudet, ongelmattomat todennäköisyydet) ja epävarmuus (ongelmattomat mahdollisuudet, ongelmalliset todennäköisyydet) ovat hankalampia. Pahin on tietämättömyys, jossa molemmat ulottuvuudet ovat ongelmallisia. Silloin mm. joustavuus, osallistaminen ja tilanteen seuranta ovat hyviä toimintatapoja. Monimutkaisessa maailmassa tieteen ei tarvitsekaan tarjota ehdottomia vastauksia, vaan se voi auttaa ymmärtämään erilaisia mahdollisia kehityskulkuja.

- Pahl-Wostl (2009) tarkastelee resurssienhallintajärjestelmien viitekehyksiä ja monitasoisia oppimisprosesseja. Monimutkaiset ja moniääniset hallintamallit sopeutuvat resurssinhallinnassa paremmin kuin muut. Monikierrosoppiminen tarkoittaa ajatusta, jonka mukaan ensimmäisellä kierroksella opitaan parantamaan toimintaa jotta vaikutukset paranevat. Toisella kierroksella nähdään asia yleisemmältä tasolta ja opitaan muuttamaan kiintopistettä. Kolmannella kierroksella opitaan muuttamaan viitekehystä. Artikkelissa myös esitellään miten nämä eri kierrokset oppivat eri tavalla epävarmuudesta, instituutioista, normeista, hallintamalleista, verkostoista, yhteistyöstä. Oppimissyklit ovat sovellettavissa myös hallintojärjestelmiin (governance regimes) mutta yleensä politiikka pyörii ykköskierroksella ja kakkos- ja kolmoskierrokset vaativat epävirallisia verkostoja.
Näiden eri kierrosten olemassaolon tunnistaminen on tärkeää sikäli, että pystyttäisiin tarkastelemaan paitsi substanssiasiaa myös itse tietotyötä kehittämisen kohteena olevana asiana. Avoin päätöksentekokäytäntökin tavoittelee tämmöistä ymmärrystä kuvaamalla paitsi asiat myös tietomenetelmät johdonmukaisesti.

- How democracy affects growth, 2001  Democracy fosters growth by improving the accumulation of human capital and, less robustly, by lowering income inequality. On the other hand, democracy hinders growth by reducing the rate of physical capital accumulation and, less robustly, by raising the ratio of government consumption to GDP. Once all of these indirect effects are accounted for, the overall effect of democracy on economic growth is moderately negative.

TÄRKEÄ! --Jouni Tuomisto (keskustelu) 9. lokakuuta 2016 kello 18.42 (UTC) (type: truth; paradigms: science: relevant defense) Franco ja työryhmä (2010) esittelevät fasilitoidun mallituksen päätöstuen muotona (kuva 4 kirjallisuuskatsauksessa). Malli perustuu neljään oletukseen, jotka poikkeavat asiantuntijavetoisesta mallituksesta (mainittu sulkeissa): ongelmat ovat sosiaalisia konstrukteja (ongelmat ovat tosimaailman objekteja); subjektiivisuus ei ole vältettävissä (analyysin pitäisi olla objektiivinen); asiakas haluaa tyydyttäviä ratkaisuja (asiakas haluaa optimaalisia ratkaisuja); osallistuminen lisää sitoutumista toteuttamiseen (tieteellisen analyysin toteuttaminen on suoraviivaista). Mallissa siis korostuu yhteenvetämisen taito.
- Assumption 1: problems are socially constructed entities. (Problems are real entities)
- Assumption 2: subjectivity is unavoidable. (The analysis should be 'objective')
- Assumption 3: clients want ‘satisficing’ solutions. (Clients want optimal solutions)
- Assumption 4: participation increases commitment for implementation. (implementation of scientifically-based analysis is straightforward).

Utility of openness in knowledge production 1-5
-  Liittyy kaupan avoimuuteen eikä tiedon avoimuuteen.
-  Abstraktin perusteella vaikuttaisi todnäk myös liittyvän kaupan avoimuuteen
-  Pelkän abstractin perusteella ei osaa sanoa.
-  Kokonaisesta kirjasta ei saa kunnolla irti mitään, koska se on liian paljon.
-  Pelkän abstractin perusteella ei osaa sanoa.
-  Johdannon perusteella tuottaa oman tavan järjestää tieteen tekeminen avoimemmaksi, mutta ei vaikuta siltä, että tuottaa tutkimustietoa tavan toimivuudesta.
-  Although no single model can fulfill the multitude of goals of such assessments, it is in highly interactive models that the possibilities of higher levels of innovation and related social impact are most likely to occur. Tää vaikuttaa siltä, että sieltä löytyis jotain jos olis access koko artikkeliin.
-  Abstraktin perusteella voi olla olennainen, mutta todennäköisemmin ehkä ei.
-  Täällä vois ehkä olla jotain, jos sais koko artikkelin jostain.
-  Abstraktin perusteella voi olla jotain, mutta todennäköisesti ei.
-  Luultavasti ei olennainen, mutta pelkkä abstrakti.
-  Teknologian potentiaalista opetuksessa, ei taida tas sisältää tutkimustietoa.
-  Luultavasti ei olennainen, mutta pelkkä abstrakti.
-  Luultavasti löytyis jotain, jos näkisi koko jutun.
-  Voisi löytyä jotain, jos näkisi koko jutun.
Openness and policy 1-2
-  Näyttää siltä, että artikkelista voisi löytyä olennaista sisältöä.
-  Kaupan avoimuudesta eikä tiedon avoimuudesta
-  Ilmeisesti kaupan eikä teidon avoimuudesta.
-  Kaupan avoimuudesta. Sama artikkeli toisessa paikassa: 
-  Abstraktin perusteella jälleen trade openness.
-  Financial openness index
Openness failure policy 1
-  Trade openness. Sama artikkeli täällä: . Nämä molemmat linkithän myös tuossa edellisen otsikon alla.
-  Liittyy ilmeisesti puoluepolitiikan toimivuuteen eri muuttujilla, mutta tästä saattaisi löytyä jotain.
-  Group Decision Support System -sovellusten toimivuudesta rryhmän päätöksenteossa. Sieltä voisi löytyä jotain.
-  Empirically driven effort to identify factors associated with state failure. Voi hyvin olla jotain, jos jaksaa kahlata koko 100 sivua läpi. Tosin niistä huomattavan suuri osa näyttäisi olevan liitteitä, ja varsinaista asiaa on ~35 sivua.
-  Tämä oli jo ensimmäisen otsikon alla heti ensimmäisenä.
Allintitle: openness failure 3/3
-  Oli jo edellisen otsikon alla.
-  Kirja on taas niin iso, ettei sieltä saa mitään järkevää irti, mutta jotkut kohdat vaikutti siltä, että niissä vois olla jotain.
-  Tässä saatto olla jotain ja en vaan osannu löytää sitä.
"Knowledge production" policy 1
-  Artikkeli puhuu tiedon tuottamisessa meneillään olevasta muutoksesta, käyttäen termejä mode 1 ja mode 2 eri tiedontuotannon tavoista, joista siis nyt ollaan siirtymässä 1:stä 2:een. Voisi löytyä jotain, jos taas saisi koko artikelin.
-  Kokonainen kirja edellä mainitusta tiedontuotannon mode 2:sta.
-  toinen artikkeli mode 2:sta
-  Ilmeisesti kirjan luku mode 2:sta
-  Maybe? I don't know. Probably not.
Tiedontuotannon mode 1 ja mode 2
- eli edellisen otsikon alka löytyvien juttujen perusajatus
Mode 1 is meant to summarise in a single phrase the cognitive and social norms which must be followed in the production, legitimation and diffusion of discipline-based knowledge. For many, Mode 1 is identical with what is meant by science. There is sufficient evidence, however, to indicate that a new, distinct set of cognitive and social practices - Mode 2 - is beginning to emerge. It is important to grasp that it is not being argued that the new practices are going to eliminate the old, that Mode 1 will eventually succumb to Mode 2.
The principal differences between Mode 1 and Mode 2 can be specified along a number of dimensions, Thus:
- In Mode 1 problems are set and solved in a context governed by the (largely academic) interests of a specific community. By contrast, in Mode 2 knowledge is produced in a context of application involving a much broader range of perspectives.
- Mode 1 is disciplinary while Mode 2 is trans-disciplinary - Mode 2 does not only draw on disciplinary contributions, but can set up new framework beyond them.
- Mode 1 is characterised by relative homogeneity of skills, Mode 2 by their heterogeneity.
- In organisational terms, Mode 1 is hierarchical and, in academic life at least, has tended to preserve its form as new specialties are differentiated. In Mode 2, the preference is for flatter hierarchies and organisational structures which are transient.
- In comparison with Mode 1, Mode 2 is more socially accountable and reflexive.
- Mode 1 and Mode 2 each employ a different type of quality control. To be sure, peer review still exists in Mode 2 but it includes a wider, more temporary and heterogeneous set of practitioners, collaborating on a problem defined in a specific and localised context. As such, Mode 2 involves an expanded system of quality control compared with Mode 1.
- the number of sites where competent research can be carried out has increased. (Ei pelkät yliopistot enää)
- emerging computer and telecommunication technologies and will enable/results in what can be described as a socially distributed knowledge production
