What role can researchers play in policy decisions that shape the future of our state? How can your research contribute to evidence-based outcomes and strategies on a range of issues including budgets, healthcare policies, economic strategies, energy and the environment? Finding ways to get your research into the hands of policymakers and community leaders can be challenging. While a peer-reviewed journal is often the destination for most scholarly publications, the dense, discipline-specific language can be inaccessible for decision makers outside academia.
