The Evaluator

The Evaluator is the members’ magazine of the UK Evaluation Society


Published two or three times per year, The Evaluator has a unique style and is a great place to catch up on what has been going on in the UK Evaluation Society and evaluation worldwide.

Each year, we produce an edition which recaps the latest UK Evaluation Society Annual Conference, capturing what attendees have rated as the very best of the conference sessions and keynotes.

In between conference editions, we produce special themed editions of topical relevance to the evaluation community. Previous editions have included: Evaluation and the Big Society; Having an Impact; Technology; The International Year of Evaluation; Democratic and Inclusive Evaluation; and Complexity.

We always try to include perspectives from across the private and third sectors, government and the academic world. The Evaluator reports on the news, debates and happenings of relevance to evaluators, and the users and commissioners of evaluation.

UK Evaluation Society members (and contributors) receive The Evaluator for free. We are always keen to get ideas for articles, features, book reviews or special editions. If you are interested in providing ideas or – even better – content, please email the Editor.
