What is Knowledge Mobilization?
SSHRC‘s definition: “The reciprocal and complementary flow and uptake of research knowledge between researchers, knowledge brokers and knowledge users—both within and beyond academia—in such a way that may benefit users and create positive impacts within Canada and/or internationally, and, ultimately, has the potential to enhance the profile, reach and impact of social sciences and humanities research. Knowledge mobilization initiatives must address at least one of the following, as appropriate, depending on research area and project objectives, context, and target audience:
- informs, advances and/or improves:
- research agendas;
- theory; and/or
- public debate;
- policies; and/or
- enhances/improves services; and/or
- informs the decisions and/or processes of people in business, government, the media, practitioner communities and civil society.”
Predatory Journals – Care is needed when looking for a journal to submit your article to or a publisher for your book. A good place to start is with one of the many lists of possibly predatory journals and publishers on the internet, for example, https://predatoryjournals.com/publishers/ and https://predatoryjournals.com/journals/. The journals list has more that 1,200 titles.
Be warned, however, these lists are not comprehensive and authoritative. They are designed to help you and they may be frequently updated, but you should conduct your own due diligence to reach your own conclusions. There are also tools to help you with this, such as the guidelines on the Think. Check. Submit. website at https://thinkchecksubmit.org/.
