There is growing external pressure from funding agencies (the tricouncil of Canada), multi-levels of governance (provincial and federal funding), and communities of practice (clinicians, advocacy groups, industry) that has begun to reframe, for Universities, and researchers, how research is written and thought about in the broader context of Knowledge Mobilization/Translation

At the same time, Universities and researchers are under increasing pressure to evaluate the impact of the research they produce, and how this research has been taken up by their identified partners.

Working together, Research Western and Western Libraries are undertaking a holistic approach to account for the entirety of the research cycle and to improve the knowledge exchange, preservation, and dissemination of our researchers’ outputs, defining knowledge stewardship for our institution.
