Within a context of shrinking government resources and greater pressure on academics and other researchers to generate ‘impact’ from (publically funded) research there is a greater need than ever to ensure that published research is readily usable by and relevant to policy end-users. Through examining and comparing two energy related evidence reviews commissioned by the UK government, this paper presents a set of recommendations for those researchers who seek to make their publications (in both the white and grey literature) more accessible, usable and relevant to those working in policy and practice domains.
