Abstract: This paper is based on the interim findings from a Department for International Development (DFID) funded research project concerning the development of practical guidelines for research dissemination strategies. The purpose of Phase 1 of the research was to understand current thinking and approaches to dissemination of research as adopted by sector based agencies both in the UK and internationally. This facilitated an initial analysis of common dissemination strategies used, problems and constraints experienced, and factors that aided effective dissemination. This in turn is used to provide tentative guidance for research contractors and DFID alike for dissemination of projects. Phase 1 comprised a desk based study, which examined 32 documents in the literature review, presented four selected case studies highlighting both effective and less effective approaches to research dissemination, and draws on interviews with key research contractor staff involved in managing research projects for DFID and other donor agencies. The key findings from each of these activities are presented below.
