Evidence-based policy (EBP), along with the 'systematic review', has recently emerged as a prominent strand within social science and public policy research. A number of articles have heralded this emergence but the vast majority are theoretical and concerned with how EBP research could be practised. This article reflects on the author's experiences of identifying and reviewing evidence on the effectiveness of labour market interventions aimed at people with a disability or a chronic illness, to demonstrate some of the methodological challenges and practical problems that arise from the actual conduct of EBP research.
