Headline results and recommendations from a 2020 study of researchers’ efforts to achieve broader impacts of their research. It was led by Kudos, and sponsored by The International Center for the Study of Research, the American Chemical Society, American Society of Microbiology, Brill, Karger Publishers and Royal Society of Chemistry.

The project gathered input from researchers, university administrators, funders and others with a role or interest in ensuring that research engages and benefits audiences beyond academia. It combined desk research and teleinterviews with a survey of over 10,000 researchers, exploring motivations, responsibilities, target audiences, channels and metrics relating to broader impacts.
