This textbook presents a much-needed 'implementation science 2.0' overview of the recent developments in a discipline that is considered to be young, has gained much attention in recent years, and has experienced substantial and rapid growth in knowledge production and debate. This book captures the latest developments in implementation research and details the next phase for implementation science. Drawing from multidisciplinary, international research by top scholars in the field, the book describes evidence for and measurement of various implementation frameworks and strategies.

Topics include:


  • Factors associated with effective implementation
  • Organizational readiness for change
  • Implementation theories, models, and frameworks
  • Case studies in linked multilevel interventions
  • Closing the emerging science-practice gap in implementation


Effective Implementation Science is a timely, important resource for researchers and students across the fields of social welfare, public health, education, and psychology.
