The Arthritis Research Campaign (arc) has asked RAND Europe to help it develop a system to monitor the outputs and outcomes of the research it funds. To assist with this process an Advisory Group of arc funded researchers has been set up to provide additional scientific expertise to the project team. This report was produced as a background document for the first Advisory Group workshop. The report outlines the project; introduces the important concepts in research evaluation, and describes some potential research evaluation tools that were explored in the workshop.
