This blog highlights an exciting new journal that launched in January 2017 highlighting engagement between University researchers and non-academic partners. The journal is co-sponsored by the UCL Institute of Education and the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).
The journal was recently featured in a Times Higher article. The journal has been established to spread ideas about how best to involve the public, in all aspects of the research process. The idea is to encourage researchers to move away from the traditional model of public engagement that generally focused on the passive dissemination of research findings.
Research for All is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on research that involves universities and communities, services or industries working together. Contributors and readers are from both inside and outside of higher education. They include researchers, policymakers, managers, practitioners, community-based organizations, schools, businesses and the intermediaries who bring these people together.
