Product Description



This book is a very important contribution in the ever-changing field of research, now facing a new paradigm-shift where impact in terms of making changes in society has been pointed out as an important issue. As there is a gap between producing breakthrough research results and inform about them in a way making it possible for society beyond academica to use the outcomes, this book is important to every researcher. To make difference as a researcher, in the sense of producing research results with impact, is a matter of articulating the results in an understandable and interesting way. This book is an answer to the questions we researchers have of how to cope with the new requirements and helps us in an excellent way to understand how to bridge the gap between our research results and how to disseminate them in a broader society than we usually do. (Mona Holmqvist 2013-09-10)


This book is both timely in its publication and of potential enormous benefit to HEI’s and academics as the emphasis in research in UK Universities and elsewhere shifts more and more towards the Impact of research and away from the Output of research.  The text is well separated into easy to read chapters dealing various aspects of the Impact Agenda and most chapters are planned is such a way as to pose questions to the reader which help them to reflect on their own particular situation. For this reason the book will be an invaluable asset to all HEI’s, Research Centres and Institutes, Graduate Schools and individual academics. (Prof Mick Fuller 2013-09-10)


This is a book that both challenges your thinking about achieving impact in research while also providing helpful  practical support. The format of the book  guides you through the text providing practical tips and suggestions along the way. The integrated personal reflection points and activities embedded throughout are helpful in keeping you fully engaged with the subject. I can highly recommend this book to students, researchers and academics. (Janet Bohrer Assistant Director - Standards, Quality and Enhancement 2013-09-10)


Achieving Impact in Research attempts both to define the impact agenda and its rationale and to provide general, targeted advice on how to engage with it. It is in this second aim that the book succeeds best. Much of the practical guidance is general enough in its approach to be relevant across disciplines but focused enough upon self-reflection and planning to be of tangible use. As such, I would recommend this book to those teaching research skills at an institutional and departmental level and also to early career researchers trying to understand impact and address it in research planning and implementation. (Dr Catherine Easton 2014-02-07)
