Innocenti Research Briefs Methodological Briefs on Evidence Synthesis. Brief 1: Overview AUTHOR(S) Shivit Bakrania Published: 2020 Innocenti Research Briefs This series of eight briefs, produced by the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti, is intended to provide guidance on how to undertake, commission and manage evidence synthesis products such as systematic reviews, rapid evidence assessments and evidence gap maps. Evidence synthesis can play an important role in UNICEF’s knowledge management and evidence translation efforts by collating knowledge from multiple studies on what interventions work, and why and how they work. It makes research more accessible and therefore can contribute to evidence-informed programming and policy decisions. The primary audience for these briefs is professionals, including UNICEF staff, who conduct, commission or interpret research and evaluation findings in development contexts to make decisions about policy, programming and advocacy.This brief provides an overview of a series of eight briefs that cover a range of evidence synthesis products that can contribute to different parts of the policy and programming cycle and strengthen evidence informed decision-making at UNICEF. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 6 | Thematic area: Knowledge management | Tags: knowledge management, research methodology × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Shivit Bakrania 2020 Methodological Briefs on Evidence Synthesis.
