2014 (English)In: Applied Vegetation Science, ISSN 1402-2001, E-ISSN 1654-109X, Vol. 17, no 3, 604-608 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The effect of applied vegetation science on society has the potential to increaseby adopting an evidence-based approach. However, this would require a shift infocus towards effect size and results suitable formeta-analyses, a focus on practitionersas potential readers, more emphasis on practical problems rather thanmechanism, and an acceptance of all well-executed experimental studies, evenif confirmatory. Thus, the prevailing editorial policies need to be reconsidered,as well as the methods of analysing, reporting and evaluating research, for ourresearch efforts to be of better use within society.
