The Homeless Hub’s mission is to make research matter. How this happens involves many layers. Typically, research is published in academic journals. It’s written in a language that is intended for academics, and is often obscured by a pay wall. Accessing and using research can be challenging for policy makers, service providers and average users alike.
For an organization interested in creating an impact with their research, an academic journal may not be the best route to take. Traditional approaches to academic publishing are not the best way to get research into the hands of those who need it most. The way research is written, designed and disseminated needs an overhaul.
