"The vast majority of knowledge-producing organizations in the social sector begin and end their publishing efforts by posting their publications to their website," said Lisa Brooks, director of knowledge management systems at Foundation Center. "Our sector has tended to under-value the knowledge we generate or treat research much as they would communications and outreach efforts."

Through its overall collection and special reports, IssueLab helps the social sector to make connections and facilitates scans of issue-areas. Other professional fields share their knowledge much more effectively and systematically, Brooks said. For example, the National Institutes of Health website, PubMed, curates some three million pieces of health research that are discoverable, savable, and freely available for download.
" Open knowledge and publishing our research will bring all of us closer to why we invest in social sector research to begin with - to better understand and raise awareness about pressing social problems, and to deepen the impact of the work we do to solve them," Brooks added.
IssueLab, founded by Fitz and Brooks, became part of Foundation Center in 2012 and currently hosts more than 20,000 pieces of research published and/or funded by more than 7,000 institutions from across the globe.
