The Publishing Protocol is for all government agencies carrying out, commissioning or communicating social science research and evaluation. It sets out good practice principles for publishing government social science research and evaluation. It helps ensure that research is published consistently and is readily available so that everyone benefits from the Government's investment in it.

The quick reference guide provides a summary. You can view the full Publishing Protocol here.

The protocol is based on the Publication Guidance developed by the United Kingdom's Government Social Research unit.
