Results of the 3rd Readership Survey for PLA Notes, which~was distributed to 2032 people with issue 37, February~2000. The responses were crucial to the development of PLA Notes, enabling the series to continue to be an important way of sharing and exchanging information about participatory approaches to development as well as continuing to promote methodological innovation and good practice. Here, the authors share the analysis of the readership survey and suggest some initial ways of how to respond to concerns and suggestions. The main themes presented in this feedback are the current situation, presentation and content and, finally, outreach and impact.

Participatory Learning and Action (PLA, formerly PLA Notes) is the world's leading series on participatory learning and action approaches and methods. PLA publishes articles on participation aimed at practitioners, researchers, academics, students and activists. All articles are peer-reviewed by an international editorial board.
