For the past year a team of academics based at LSE, the University of Leeds and Imperial College have been working on a ‘Research Impacts’ project aimed at developing precise methods for measuring and evaluating the impact of research in the public sphere.
The handbook is divided into two sections: “Part A: Maximising Academic impacts of Research” and “Part B: Maximising research impacts beyond the academy”. The handbook provides detailed information on what constitutes good practice in improving the impact of social science research. It also surveys a wide range of new developments, tools and techniques to help make sense of a rapidly changing field.
