Add Evidence and Tools
We need the evidence and the tools on the hub to be updated regularly to ensure that this remains an essential resource for evidence-based practitioners. If you feel that we have missed out an essential topic, study (practitioner or academic), tool, guidance, materials or policy document or white paper, please do let us know. If you are a practitioner who has developed materials (such as a training course or a measure) related to one of our topics and would like to see your work included on the hub, please read the specific section below.
Our inclusion criteria:
In order to maintain the rigour, credibility and quality of the hub, all evidence and tools included on the hub are subjected to a rigorous quality control process:
- Academic evidence is only included if it is a) an empirical study and b) published in a peer-reviewed journal.
- Practitioner evidence is only included if it is a) an empirical study and b) of publishable standard. If is not clear that these criteria have been met the decision on inclusion will be taken by two experts who are practitioners and academics.
- Tools and guidance are only included if they a) draw on empirical evidence and b) if appropriate, have been subjected to reliability and validity testing. If it is not clear that these criteria have been met the decision on inclusion will be taken by two experts who are practitioners and academics.
If your evidence or tools that you would like to add satisfy our inclusion criteria, please do complete the form below.
Practioners and Organisations adding their own materials
The hub is in its infancy, however our aim is that over the next year or two, the number of users of this hub will increase so that this is seen as an essential resource for all practitioners, policy makers, academics and students interested in, or working within, the area of workplace health, wellbeing and engagement. This means that the number of users viewing the hub, and the materials included within it, will be significant.
Fee to include materials that are not free-to-access:
The hub is, and will continue to be, a free resource to all. We recognise however that some practitioners and organisations need to monetise their materials. If the materials that you would like to include on the hub have a fee associated with their use (e.g. a psychometric test which users need to pay to gain feedback from), you will be charged a fee in order that your materials are considered for inclusion (POA). This both pays for our time to review and subject the materials to a Quality Control process, and also is in recognition of the ‘advertising’ that your materials will gain from inclusion.
Please note: The fee applies to (largely practitioner originated) materials and tools that have a payment associated to their use, including member-only resources. It does not however include academic papers.
What happens if materials do not pass the Quality Control (QC) process:
If, following the QC process, your materials are rejected, you will be provided with feedback on the reasons for this rejection and actions needed for the materials to be suitable for inclusion. You can then choose to submit free of charge, following the necessary amendments, one more time. If it is subsequently rejected, you will be asked to pay a further fee for any future submission requests. If you feel that your materials have been unfairly rejected, you can choose for the materials to be reconsidered under appeal which will be conducted by an external examiner. If the appeal is successful, your materials will be included in the hub. If not, you will be asked to pay a fee for any future resubmission of the materials.
