This chapter discusses how the influence of research is mediated, blocked, or amplified, or more instrumentally, how any research influence might be enhanced. It emphasizes that this book is interested not only in the use of research findings, but also in the broader assimilation of research ideas, theories, and concepts into discourse and debates. It explores what it means to employ research in policy and practice settings, and describes key models of the research impact process. It also identifies ways of promoting and improving the use of research.

Keywords:   research, research theories, policy, practice settings, research ideas, evidence
