TRI Journal


Translational Research Insights (TRI) is a new free brief open access on-line and print journal, published four times per year, accepting articles of 2,000 words, written for a general audience interested and involved in educational improvement.

TRI publishes short articles on the topic of improving the use of good research. The Editors welcome articles from academics, policy-makers, practitioners, organisations and members of the general public. Articles must have a focus on the evidence of how best to get high quality education research findings into more widespread use in real-life. This includes how to evaluate ways of getting evidence into use, how to judge high quality evidence, and examples of high quality evidence that should be in more widespread use for policy/practice.
