Overview

Oxfam strives to base its programmes on good quality research. Each year we devote significant resources to undertaking and commissioning research that will support and help to improve our work and that of our partners. Are we getting value for money in the research produced?

The clarity of the Terms of Reference (TOR) given to the researcher(s) is one of the most important factors determining the quality of a piece of research. These guidelines and the accompanying template present a format for writing a clear and effective TOR. The following sections mirror those in the Terms of Reference for Research template and should be used as a guide to completing this document.
