INGSA Evidence and Policy Survey 2018 – Now Open for your input

The INGSA Knowledge Hub at the University of Sheffield are carrying out academic research into the professional communities involved in promoting and using evidence in policy-making. In this project, we will examine the range of concepts and methods related to evidence and policy that are used and promoted by members of this community.

We are inviting people involved in promoting and using evidence in policy-making to take part in a short survey that will ask about their perspectives on concepts and methods used in the field. The results of this survey will be used for the publication of academic reports and papers, and will assist the secretariat of the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) to better support this community.


You can take part here:


The deadline for participation is midnight on Friday December 21st 2018.

The survey will take around 5 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary, and you can leave the survey at any time by navigating away from the webpage. No personal identifiable data will be collected through this survey, so responses will remain anonymous. By completing the survey, you consent to the researchers and the INGSA secretariat using your anonymous responses for the purposes of this and related future research, and the administration of the INGSA network. Whether or not you participate will not affect your relationship with INGSA in any way.

If you would like further information or have any questions about this research, please email James Wilsdon and Jasper Montana on

Thank you for your contribution.
