Abstract/Summary Steven Wooding will describe the RAISS* tool - a low burden method of mapping the impacts of biomedical research across the research portfolio. The main body of RAISS is around 250 Yes/No questions that explore what impacts a piece of research has contributed to. By using high level questions to determine which detail questions are asked and by asking exclusively Yes/No questions the average completion time of the questionnaire is just over half an hour, with 90% of questionnaires completed in less than an hour. Despite this quick completion time the questionnaire still collects information across a huge range of impacts including on career development; collaboration within and outside academia; research capacity building, research tool production, dissemination in academic and non-academic contexts, impacts on health policy through a variety of routes; impacts on education and training of others and a wide variety of intervention, product development and public health advice outcomes. RAISS provides an overview of research impact and a basis for more detailed examination of particular research evaluation questions focusing on the 'why and how' of translation. We have also developed "Impact Arrays" as a way to represent the impacts of research and give an instant overview of the research portfolio and the ease of completion can allow tracking of impacts over time.
