The quality of intervention studies in rural development research was found to be predominantly poor, thereby limiting their usefulness for evidence-based decision-making. We recommend two practical steps that individuals and teams can take to improve both the quality and the potential utilisation of their research at minimal extra cost. One step is to utilise standardised research quality assessment tools and reporting guidelines to routinely review peers’ research grant applications and journal manuscripts prior to submission.
