Make your knowledge matter: guide to developing and documenting research

Local government Australia

This guide has been developed as part of an overall suite of initiatives to encourage local government practitioners to develop ideas, document good practice and share their work with a wider audience.

This guide aims to:

  • Build the capacity of local government practitioners to improve the quality and impact of their written contributions to forums, conferences, newsletters, journals, and other places.
  • Support researchers inside local government – whoever they are – to effectively document ideas and practice in a clear, well- structured and credible piece of written work.
  • Encourage local government practitioners to contribute to the body of local government research, whether or not they have formal qualifications.

The Guide offers tools, tips and thinklists to help develop credible, robust, and logical writing to share with the local government sector.
