Network analysis of RE-AIM framework: chronology of the field and the connectivity of its contributors
The reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance (RE-AIM) framework has been widely used for translational research. We used social network analysis (SNA) to explore how innovative research frameworks, such as RE-AIM, have diffused over time in academic literature. A structured literature review was conducted on
While the benefits of collaboration have become widely accepted and the practice of collaboration is growing within the public health system, a paucity of research exists that examines factors and mechanisms related to effective collaboration between public health and their partner organizations. The purpose of
In public health departments across America, teams are building partnerships and networks in their communities to help address the social determinants of health and other upstream community health factors. However, there’s very little in the literature that provides a data-based perspective on network best practices
Support for the “democratization of the policy sciences” has led to the development of a number of frameworks and theories to enhance the normative, multidisciplinary approach to policy analysis. However, this approach has been challenged for failing to produce the objective empirical and normative standards

However, operationalizing meaningful family involvement within SOCs remains a challenge, with
The objective of this article is to demonstrate a data-driven management approach to effectively implement quality improvement (QI) in public health collaboratives. Using a modeled simulation, this article utilizes network data to demonstrate strategic management approaches. Design: This article uses simulated data to demonstrate the
“Can state–society synergy be created in the short run, or does it require historically deep institutional and normative foundations?” In other words, what role can an outside party—such as a government or state actor—play in constructing social capital when it is not a permanent fixture
Comparisons of Network Structures Across Public Health Collaboratives: New Perspectives on the “Silo Effect”
In a response to scarce public resources and the nature of complex intractable public health problems, there have been increased multiorganizational and multisector collaborations to address population needs. Building organizational capacity to better serve community public health and other public service needs is an important
Interorganizational networks are a common collaborative approach to tackle complex issues such as public health, national security, education, and poverty. While there is a consensus that networks are a viable approach to these issues, it is unclear what factors lead to effective collaborative performance. One
