As its name suggests, K4P is all about evidence-based policymaking, so we are (more or less obliged!) to design and build it based on solid audience research. When we set out, we were unable to find any audience research focused on:
- bridging the science-policy gap
- what either scientists or policymakers want from websites like K4P in general, and from online communities in particular
… so we did some ourselves.
However, we would love to see more, and best practices. So I’d be very grateful if anyone can point us to:
- audience research
- and/or best practices
- relevant to evidence-based policymaking - ie, reflecting the preferences of scientists and/or policymakers
- particularly concerning communities of practice (particularly supporting scientists) or communities of interest bringing together scientists and policymakers
Many thanks. I look forward to discovering this community.
