You can find a general introduction to the i2Insights blog and repository on the ‘About‘ page. We welcome partnerships with relevant organisations, events and journals, whose members or contributors provide i2Insights contributions over a short or longer time.
i2Insights currently has two productive long-term partnerships with:
Previous partnerships have been with:
- National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC)
- Defence Science and Technology
- the journal Evidence and Policy.
The partnership with the PopulationHealthXchange started in October 2018. PopulationHealthXchange is hosted by the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at The Australian National University and “provides resources for fostering partnership and knowledge co-production among researchers and diverse stakeholders in order to achieve better health outcomes through evidence-informed policy and practice change.”

GAIA: Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society
Since 2017, contributors to the journal GAIA have been invited to further the reach of their work through i2Insights contributions about their papers. GAIA makes these papers free-to-access for a month after the i2Insights contribution is published, unless the paper is already open access.

The foundation partnership for i2Insights, from 2015-2018, was with SESYNC, the US National Science Foundation-funded National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center at the University of Maryland, located in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.
i2Insights blog and repository was a core activity of the SESYNC theme Building resources for complex, action-oriented team science. The theme was home to the three pursuits listed below and their activities are showcased in a number of i2Insights contributions. Blog posts have also been contributed by participants in other SESYNC pursuits and activities.
The three pursuits in the SESYNC theme Building resources for complex, action-oriented team science were:
i2Insights contributions resulting from the activities of these pursuits can be found at https://i2insights.org/tag/partner-sesync/.
Defence Science and Technology
The partnership with Defence Science and Technology in the Australian Department of Defence was based on a collaborative project on unknown unknowns. i2Insights published a series of blog posts about unknown unknowns written by experts in the field between August 2019 and January 2021, with a synthesis published in September 2022.

Evidence and Policy
Between 2016 and 2020, contributors to the journal Evidence and Policy, were invited to further the reach of relevant work through i2Insights contributions about their papers. Evidence and Policy made these papers free-to-access for a month after the blog post was published, unless the paper was already open access.
