Results Chain Approach Validated by Scottish Paper on Research Uptake and Impact

The results chain approach and content found in most of the articles published on the PMN web site – dating back decades (see for a retrospective results chain illustration of the acceptance of reach and results chains – as contributed to by PMN work) continue to gain acceptance.  Sarah Morton of the University of Edinburgh shows what she has called  a ‘research grounded contribution framework’,  using a model that S. Montague and PMN have been using for some time now (see link above) – as evidenced by the references in the PMN library.
