Call for Papers for Special Issue of Evaluation Review: External Validity and Policy

August 8, 2014 09:00 AM

The growing emphasis on “evidence based policy” (EBP) is a challenge for the existing evidence base. Most evidence formally applies to a particular program, in a particular place, at a particular time. EBP uses that very specific impact evaluation evidence to inform choices about some other program, in some other place, at some other time.

A special issue of Evaluation Review seeks papers that are informative about this translation of specific evaluation results to other contexts. Topics of interest include external validity, generalizability, and replicability. Particularly of interest are contributions that have practical application to the work of evaluators, policy makers at various levels, and decision-makers tasked with determining an EBP’s appropriateness for the context of their setting and population.

The special issue seeks (i) general papers on these topics; (ii) discussions of how these topics relate to the policy challenges of EBP; and (iii) case studies of how these issues have been addressed—especially, but not exclusively, by official systematic evidence reviews.
