The site is curated by an independent editorial panel. All relevent publications, which are group by year, will be included in the Repository section. The Editorial Panel will then assess each of these pieces to select those that they feel merit being included in the selected/showcase section. The Editorial Panel aims to have about a dozen reports included in the showcase section by the end of each year. The Ed Panel base their decision on the quality of the research/evidence, the coherence of the arguments, the report format/accessibility and how innovative and practical the pieces are.
The overall objective is to provide easy access to a few key reports and provide a home for all relevant work. These will help inform policy makers who are engaged in understanding how we can build more and better homes and communities, improve knowledge transfer and provide evidence/ideas to drive decision making. The Editorial Panel will also write a short review for many of the selected reports. To help speech writers and journalists each annual section will include some interesting 'bite size' facts on reports published in the year.
Finally the Ed Panel will write a review of each research year and comment on any notable gaps in that year's research.
