About this journal

Evidence & Policy is the first peer-reviewed journal dedicated to comprehensive and critical assessment of the relationship between research evidence and the concerns of policy makers and practitioners, as well as researchers. 
 

What people are saying about Evidence & Policy

"This journal contributes significantly to our understanding of how and where evidence influences policy not only by broadening the horizons of researchers and policy makers on what counts in the decision process, but by its focus on experience in the field." Fred Carden, Director, Evaluation, International Development Research Centre, Canada

"This is a journal that many researchers, decision makers and public service providers have been waiting for." Professor Haluk Soydan, University of Southern California

“Evidence-based policy is the watchword today in many countries and with many international organizations. This journal is the place to explore its many meanings, how it is operationalized and how it works. A journal worth reading!” Professor Tom Cook, Northwestern University
