You might have noticed little codes on journal articles and other resources - these are known as DOIs (digital object identifiers). In this post we talk about why we've decided to start adding DOIs to our own outputs, including our Outlines and any other resources we publish.
ESSS has been looking into the research around evidence-based practice (EBP) in social work. In this post, we'll be sharing some of the key issues highlighted in the literature. Generally, there is a lot of discussion around the barriers to EBP. These tend to be focused around the evidence itself, practitioners and organisations, and we've summarised some of these issues here.
We're in the process of building an online learning resource to help people working in the area of social services to learn more about finding, accessing and using research and evidence to support their practice. In the meantime, we thought we'd share some of the free tools we use when we're working on our Outlines to support social services practitioners.
