In this special issue of Brock Education: Journal for Educational Research and Practice, we build on the knowledge mobilization (KMb) discourses initiated by the Ontario Ministry of Education (MOE), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Knowledge Network for Applied Education Research (KNAER), Canadian Society for the Study of Education (CSSE), and School District-University Research Exchange (SURE) network. We feature five journal articles and a book review addressing the three main KMb questions: How to assess KMb efforts across educational systems?  To what extent do educators use research to inform their praxis? How to make KMb work?
