Professor Hazel Hall launches new impact study: DREaM Again


Professor Hazel Hall has recently launched a new study to be completed with Centre for Social Informatics colleagues Dr Bruce Ryan and Peter Cruickshank. This will measure the long-term impact of the AHRC-funded Developing Research Excellence and Methods (DREaM) project from 2011/12.

The initial successes of the DREaM project were reported in a paper presented at QQML 2012. The new study considers any further lasting impacts of the project as reported by its participants three years beyond the project end. The study aims to uncover use of the methods presented at the DREaM workshops; any new DREaM-inspired Library and Information Science research and publications, and their impacts; and the influence of DREaM on individuals’ career paths.

In addition an exploration of the on-going working relationships between members of the DREaM workshop cadre will update the social network analysis  published in a paper by Professor Hazel Hall and Dr Louise Cooke in the Journal of Documentation in 2013: Facets of DREaM: A social network analysis exploring network development in the UK LIS research community.

For further information about this study, please see the post on Professor Hazel Hall's blog.
