    Innovative tools and teaching practices often fail to be adopted by educators in the field, despite evidence of their effectiveness. Nai¨ve models of educational change assume this lack of adoption arises from failure to properly disseminate promising work, but evidence suggests that dissemination via publication is simply not effective. Instead of studying the adoption or rejection of a particular intervention, this paper turns the problem around.
