New evidence and policy research, well-established themes



Cairney P & Smith KE (2021) New evidence and policy research, well-established themes. Evidence and Policy, 17 (1), pp. 3-8. https://doi.org/10.1332/174426421X16100429646451

Evidence & Policy exists to explore a general question: what is the link between the production of evidence and its use in policy and practice? This question is necessarily broad and interpreted in different ways by a wide variety of approaches. As such, it is difficult to provide a short and simple overall narrative of the articles that we publish in each issue or to extend that narrative to multiple issues. This is one reason why we are changing how we approach editorials: with the exception of guest-edited Special Issues, we will no longer try to introduce each issue of Evidence & Policy and will instead publish an annual editorial, in which we introduce the first issue of the year and take stock of how this relates to insights over the past year.
