Here are a few of my publications that have gone down well with friends and colleagues. You'll also find me blogging about evaluating prizes for development for Ideas to Impact

Evaluation of DFID Online Research Portals and Repositories (published 2016)

I led the global market research component of this evaluation and Volume Two of the report starts with what we found out about how development actors use the internet to encounter and use research evidence. Volume One, Two and the Substantive report has lots of interesting stuff for anyone working in research communication, knowledge-brokering, etc. and introduced me to information behaviour theory (thanks, Helen Sharp, at the Open University). Nice to see DFID's response up there too about what they've done with the findings.
