Producing sector research for a wider audience

Two separate approaches on the subject of making research on the sector accessible by the sector, both asking for input.

 National Coalition for Independent Action has an introductory article which says “often academic research uses obscure language and is presented in ways that make practitioners lose the will to live”, ‘Making research accessible to practitioners‘. They have come up with 3 examples of making research more accessible (a video, a Word document and a pdf) and want feedback, at http://www.independentaction.net/research/.

 An article (on NCVO pages) from the Institute for Volunteering Research, following a presentation at the Evolve conference on their Volunteering for Stronger Communities project. This acknowledges a lack of producing short accessible briefings for a wider audience, and also asks for feedback.
