DescriptionBarriers to research use are common to most scientific disciplines and areas of investigation. This paper addresses three interrelated issues to enhancing the effectiveness of science to aid decision making specifically to outdoor recreation, leisure and tourism: (1) clearly defining and framing research problems, (2) enhancing the flow of research findings to those who need them, and (3) enhancing education and training of researchers and practitioners. Suggestions are offered to help deal with these and related barriers.
