Use of academic social research by public officials: exploring preferences and constraints that impact on research use Use of academic social research by public officials: exploring preferences and constraints that impact on research use HOT

While academics can do more to communicate the key messages of their research, the  organisational cultures and information infrastructure of policy-related work units also play a large part in influencing the extent of research uptake in government agencies. Data from a large Australian survey (N 2084) of policy-related officials in government agencies is examined to provide insights into how certain preferences, constraints and organisational factors influence the ways in which policy personnel seek out and use academic social research.
