What is knowledge?
We’ve prepared these notes to help organisations self-assess whether the information, campaign or initiative they are submitting is likely to be suitable for the Road Safety Knowledge Centre.
The Knowledge Centre contains examples of materials and information used by road safety and active/sustainable travel professionals. We undertake a high level screening process for all items submitted and reserve the right not to include a submission at our absolute discretion.
Here are the criteria that we would like you to use to evaluate your submission – the more questions you can answer ‘yes’ to, the more likely your submission will be suitable for inclusion.
‘Professional’ – has the information, campaign or initiative you are submitting been developed by an organisation(s) professionally involved in road safety in the UK, or a registered charity involved in road safety?
‘Important & useful’ – is the information, campaign or initiative of sufficient substance to make it likely to be considered important and useful by fellow road safety and active travel professionals across the UK?
‘Well researched’ – is the information, campaign or initiative you are submitting data-led and backed by research carried out by a reputable research organisation or using the road safety E-valu-it site?
‘Replicable’ – if it is a campaign or initiative, can it be replicated by other road safety and/or active travel professionals, or used as a basis for creating something similar?
‘Effective’ – if it is a campaign or initiative that has concluded, has its effectiveness and ‘value-for-money’ been robustly evaluated, either by a reputable research organisation or using the road safety E-valu-it site? If it is ongoing, are you able to demonstrate its effectiveness in some measurable way?
In addition to the above, please be aware that we can only consider a submission if:
• It comes from the organisation that developed it, and who can vouch that the information provided is accurate.
• The individual making the submission has first-hand knowledge and understanding of the information, campaign or initiative.
