Evaluation journals play an important role in documenting, developing, and sharing theory and practice.

In this week's post, we've highlighted evaluation journals that would be useful to add to your regular reading, or to refer to for specific searches. They're divided into three categories:

Hi Prof Patricia

This is an excellent list. It would be good if you could also explain in the page intro, from your point of view, why is it useful for evaluation practitioner to add those journals as regular reading.
