Sandy Oliver, Professor of Public Policy, EPPI-Centre, UCL Institute of Education
Real world problems rarely fit neatly into single academic disciplines. Investigation from multiple angles reveals different aspects of the problems or potential solutions. Having a commitment to delivering evidence to inform policy decisions challenges us to engage with literatures from different academic disciplines.
Reviewing literatures that are bounded by policy interests rather than academic disciplines has implications for the composition of the review team, how to search for studies, how to judge their quality, how to synthesise the findings and, generally, how to work together. Sandy Oliver will present some of challenges encountered when synthesising evidence for national and international policy organisations. She will tell some stories about reviewing in unfamiliar territory and offer some suggestions for transdisciplinary synthesis.
