Evidence-based social sciences is one of the most cutting-edge areas of this discipline. It makes decisions using the best available facts from different sources in a careful, explicit, and judicious manner. It may also be conducive to evidence-based social work, or at least a form of evidence-based practise. The research findings in this recent emerging field assist social workers at various levels of the social sciences, such as policy making, administration, academics, education, and social settings, among others. Critical assessment is needed when using research in a real-world setting, not only to trust the paper’s internal validity or rigour methodology, but also to assess the degree to which research findings can be applied in a real-world setting. The latter is, without a doubt, a subjective judgement. It is important to pay more attention to this field because social science results are highly context dependent. The aim of this paper is to implement evidence-based social sciences and their significance, as well as to propose standards for critical evaluation of research results for use in society. Finally, certain problems in proof implementations can be identified and avoided as far as possible.
