New report from Iriss: The future for personalisation? Service users, carers and digital engagement

Social media is used by an increasing number of people to communicate: from rating purchases on Amazon to sharing news, views and opinion through Twitter, to sharing photographs and video on Flickr and Youtube.

We commissioned Shirley Ayres of Aspire Knowledge to look at how social media is being used by service users and carers and to consider the current state of online marketplaces specialising in goods and services for services users and carers.

Crime and justice research collection published

Iriss has been involved in the development of a crime and justice research collection, which contains a mixture of podcasts and videos about recent research on crime and justice related topics.

The collection has been designed to improve access to, and awareness of, research findings and debate. It includes a combination of videos and audio, and has been supported by the Higher Education Academy: C-SAP Network, Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) and Iriss.
