Since 2007, INASP’s AuthorAID project has been working to support developing-country researchers to communicate their research more effectively. A new independent evaluation of three main aspects of the project – mentoring, large-scale online courses and intensive courses – has revealed that each intervention has a positive impact on researchers’ ability to publish their research and also on their overall confidence and research connections. It also revealed that different approaches suit different audiences.

Here we share the summary report and a Learning, Reflections and Innovation article reflecting on the findings and their implications, as well as infographics that show some of the key findings.
