The National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) is delighted announce the 3rd issue of Research for All, our open-access, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the importance of public engagement to research.
This issue presents the first in a series of occasional features focusing on engaged research in a specific sector. This time we investigate schools and researchers working together, with articles on young people contributing to research (Colthurst & Tuite; Parker), sharing research findings in the classroom (Tagg & Jafry), collaboration with school management for effective health research (Hewitt et al.), enabling better school-university knowledge exchange (Morris et al.) and transitions for students (Michels & Eijkelhof), and the implications of student volunteers supporting after-school clubs (Tansy & Gallo).
The issue also presents contributions related to health (Baker & Courtney; Moberg et al.; Grant et al.; Mclean et al.), the green economy (Ward et al.) and English for speakers of other languages (Mclean et al.), and on subjects that are key to everyone involved in engaged research, notably project evaluation (Reed et al.), impact measurement (Grant et al.) and modes of sharing knowledge (editorial). A book review (Hemsley & Gordon-Smith) highlights the difficulty in using one resource to address different audiences.
Research for All is a collaboration between the UCL Institute of Education and the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), and is published by UCL IOE Press.
Launched in 2017, the journal publishes two issues per year, in January and July. The journal is free to write for and free to read.
