The International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice
"Over the last two decades, evaluation has become a major issue for academics, governmental and public organizations and businesses throughout the world. This has, however, resulted in a body of knowledge scattered across disciplines, professions and countries.
To promote dialogue internationally and to build bridges within this expanding field, Evaluation: The International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice was launched in July 1995.
Evaluation is interdisciplinary, bringing together contributions from across the social sciences and related disciplines, including, but not limited to:
* politics, economics and public administration
* psychology, sociology and anthropology
* education, health and law
* information science and information technology
The journal publishes multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and issue-based contributions.
Evaluation encourages dialogue between different evaluation traditions such as program evaluation, technology assessment, auditing, value-added studies, policy evaluation and quality assessment.
The journal also bridges domains where evaluation is currently taking place, including:
* education, science and technology policy
* criminal justice
* healthcare and social services
* vocational training
* regional development
Edited from a European base, Evaluation is an international journal which promotes exchange between European, North American, Asian and Australasian voices within the evaluation community."
