Pagination or Media Count:
In the research reported here, RAND Corporation researchers developed knowledge readiness levels KRLs. KRLs are used to estimate the scientific maturity of knowledge products emerging from health research. The authors completed the KRLs in consultation with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command USAMRMC and built on the previous efforts of a USAMRMC working group. The KRLs are intended to provide a consistent and reliable means of measuring and comparing the scientific maturity of diverse knowledge products aimed at advancing scientific methods or capabilities for maximizing human health and related performance.
