The utilization of social policy research

Date of publication: March 1, 1979

Abstract:

Existing doubts about the viability of applied social science notwithstanding, systematic, empirical analyses of the utilization of social research are virtually absent. Based upon data from interviews with social researchers and policymakers about 120 projects of social policy research in The Netherlands, this paper analyses and evaluates the cognitive, communicative and diagnostic functions of social policy research in organizational decisions.
