Scholarly research plays an important role in shaping education policy around the world, but the process of disseminating and applying research findings remains complicated and difficult. Analyzing efforts to mobilize such knowledge in nine countries, the contributors to this volume provide an unprecedented international perspective on the way education research is produced and shared. By detailing the many factors that support or inhibit these endeavors, they identify global trends and point the way toward improvements that could increase the positive impact of research in education.
