Principles and Guidelines on Evidence-to-Policy

Concepts and practices for how knowledge informs public policy, have changed dramatically since it emerged as a discrete area of study. Often these discursive shifts are brought about, or documented by, attempts to codify the Principles or Guidelines that should underpin the practice of science advice. How these have changed over the years are illustrative of how the field has evolved and is dealing with the challenges facing it and society.

These resources provide guidance on the current best practice, as well as track the critical moments that have faced this burgeoning field of thought.
