Citations
The original publication(s) of the model.

Construct
Name of the construct developed by classifying/aligning the elements abstracted from models.


Construct Flexibility
The definition/flexibility of the model constructs. Construct flexibility is measured on a 1-5 scale, with Broad (1) meaning constructs are loosely outlined and defined allowing for greater flexibility to apply the model to a wide array of D&I activities and contexts, or Operational (5) meaning constructs are detailed with step-by-step actions for completion of D&I research.

D

D &/or I
The focus on dissemination and/or implementation activities. D-only focuses on an active approach of spreading evidence-based interventions to target audience via determined channels using planned strategies. D=I, D>I, and I>D means there is some focus on both dissemination and implementation. I-only focuses on process of putting to use or integrating evidence-based interventions within a setting.

Definition
