Given its strong research base, separate administrative systems and consensual policy style, Scotland provides an interesting case for exploring the relationship between research and policy. This paper outlines approaches and initiatives developed by government, research funders and universities to promote better linkages between research and policy within Scotland. It illustrates how these play out through the example of the Scottish Early Years Framework and reflects on: the overall character of these initiatives; their success to date; some of the concerns they raise; and the extent to which these developments address those features generally associated with effective practices to increase research impact.
