Improving research communication and its application in practice
MetadataShow full item record
This paper looks at how research findings are communicated to library practitioners, the ways in which practitioners can be involved in research, and the application of research in practice. I begin by discussing findings from my doctoral research relating to practitioner reading habits and the communication channels responsible for practitioners gaining awareness of research. This is followed by a description of the systematic review process as carried out by an evidence-based nursing centre to illustrate how other fields involve practitioners in research. I then provide an example of applying research in practice, drawn from my current position in an academic library. I conclude by proposing a number of strategies to improve research communication and the application of research in practice in information and library studies.
