For anyone new to the idea of generating and capturing impact from their research, a good place to start is public engagement.

By disseminating your research more widely and engaging with a variety of different stakeholders you will be able to track whether your research is having a real-world impact.

Some of the best resources that we have found for getting started with public engagement can be found below:

Public engagement toolkits (National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement – NCCPE):

Fast Track Impact Blog – Evidencing Impacts from Public Engagement:

Research for All Journal Article: A Common Standard for the Evaluation of Public Engagement with Research (Reed et al., 2018): Website – The impact Factor: How to Raise Your Public Profile:
