Here at the LSE blogs, we are always eager to follow up on our published posts and track the impact that they have; whether this is mainstream media coverage, inclusion on a university course reading list, references in grey literature or in policy documentation. Much of this can be captured by link-tracking but there are inevitably cases we can’t pick up and so we are reliant on our contributors to bring these to our attention. Many of the most compelling examples of positive impact have been related to us anecdotally.
That is why we are inviting all our contributors to share their own examples. What impact did your post have following publication? What were the benefits of writing with us? Were you subsequently called on as an expert? What other opportunities did your blog post afford you? Examples might include an invitation to contribute to a (national or local) government project or initiative; collaborations with business or third sector organizations; new publishing opportunities; or even an invitation to participate in new, related research. However incidental your example might seem, we’d love to hear about it.
So, if you are a contributor and you do have an example of post-publication impact to share, please do so by completing the form below. (If you have written for an LSE blog other than British Politics and Politics, you can fill out this form instead.)
Please note, we may follow up to discuss your example with you. Thank you so much for your help!
