See the change... be the change
We know that evidencing real impact is hard. Beyond usage and citations, it is difficult to see where individual pieces of research have had an impact.
This is especially challenging when you consider how one piece of research can lead to another, which might then lead to policy change. But without that first piece of research, would the impact have happened? We also know that impact takes time, especially in the social sciences.
Thank you to everyone who has shared their story. Submissions for the Literati Lookback campaign have now closed.
All those selected to feature in our Real Impact case study book will be notified by 06 June 2022.
Now in its 2nd year, the Literati Lookback campaign invites previous Literati Award winners to submit details on how their research has since evolved and what has changed, since they won.
We want to recognise the end impact of research since it was first published, and in doing so, demonstrate tangible stories of real impact, and how research is playing such a key role in delivering change towards our SDG aligned goals.
Share your journey to impact
This is your chance to have your research story featured in a Real Impact case study book. We'll feature at least 4 chosen stories, each one will align with one of our 4 SDG Goals, plus your story will be celebrated across our global social media channels.
Indigenous voices special focus
We recognise the challenges underrepresented groups face so we’re working with our partners to create a fairer and more inclusive research environment where diverse voices are heard and valued.
Along with research aligned to our SDG goals, we are keen to hear about any previous Literati Award winning research that specifically focuses on an area connected with Indigenous experiences and how this research has helped give a voice to Indigenous communities, whilst also playing a key role in delivering change.
To enter, you will need to tell us:
- The title of the research that won a Literati Award and in what year
- A brief overview of the initial research and how it has evolved since its win
- Whether you partnered with any non- academics
- Any challenges you faced in conducting your research
- How your research has made an impact on society today and what has changed as a result
- Which of our four SDG goals does your research align to.
