Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

This paper examines the Scottish physical activity research collaboration. The Scottish physical activity research collaboration aims to contribute to the evidence base on physical activity and health by evaluating the effectiveness of specific practice-based interventions. Also aims to disseminate the above evidence amongst practitioners, policy makers and academics in appropriate ways and to facilitate the use of evidence to inform policy and practice. Raises the profile of research on health-related physical activity in Scotland with the academic community, research funding bodies, policy makers and practitioners.
