Get to know Research for All
We are happy to present to you a new open access journal hosted on ScienceOpen: Research for All by UCL Press. This journal is the fourth journal that was based at the UCL Institute of Education to join our interactive discovery environment of nearly 65 million academic and scientific records.
Research for All is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses on research involving universities and communities, services or industries working together. It features theoretical and empirical analysis alongside authoritative commentary to explore a range of themes that are key to engaged research. As a journal centered on engaging different sectors of communities, Research for All is complemented by ScienceOpen’s extensive user engagement capacities. Scientific members are able to leave post-publication reviews, all users may follow the collection to receive notifications when new publications are released, and authors have convenient usage statistics they can track to monitor views of their works. As a collaboration between UCL and the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement, with associate editors that are academics and professionals working in a wide range of fields, Research for All highlights the potential in active public engagement for robust academic study, the development of involved communities and the impact of research. As such, it is a journal for everyone involved in engaged research.
