Increasingly, we are being asked to measure impact. This is a call across the world by funders, governments and philanthropy. The university sectors now have, in many countries requirements to demonstrate the impact of their research and practice. Despite these calls and requirements, measuring impact is not easy, an exact science and metrics can be problematic. Issues of evidencing the causal connection between research and change is not easy, attribution is hard and real impact can take time in a context where bodies are calling for demonstration of impact in short time periods.
This paper examines some of the challenges around impact measurement, the research landscape in research excellence frameworks and provide some guides as to good practice and tips using access to justice initiatives as a case study.
