National Implementation Research Network
Researchers, program developers, and others interested in the development, research, implementation, and replication of evidence-based programs and practices have a resource in the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) website at http://nirn.fpg.unc.edu/. Coordinated and promoted by the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute, University of South Florida, the network provides an environment for participants to share knowledge, foster partnerships, and participate in technical assistance efforts.
Recently released by NIRN is Implementation Research: A Synthesis of the Literature, which summarizes findings from an extensive review of more than 700 articles on implementation. The synthesis also addresses implementation in the context of community, a conceptual view of implementation, core implementation components, and organizational context and external influences. The synthesis is available at http://nirn.fpg.unc.edu/resources/implementation-research-synthesis-literature.
