Writing Workshops on Shaping the Future of Science Policy

With the support of The Kavli Foundation, the Journal of Science Policy and Governance (JSPG) & AAAS are proud to launch a new call for papers and prize competition to empower next-gen leaders in reimagining the future of U.S. science policy.

Students, policy fellows, young professionals, and early career researchers of all disciplines and backgrounds are invited to consider ways we can build a better, more #effective, and #equitable American science enterprise by building on the framework laid out in Vannevar Bush's "Science: The #EndlessFrontier" framework 75 years ago.

Top papers will be awarded prize dollars and access to outreach funds to act on their policy position papers. Please see and share our press release, guiding events, and call for papers:

The submission deadline is April 2, 2021.

To help authors shape their writing for this special issue, we will host a two-day writing workshop on January 9 and 10, 2021 to provide guidance on writing effective policy position papers.‚ÄčThese events will help inform and inspire potential authors with writing policy position papers on ways to build a better American science enterprise, as well as equip them with the necessary skills to do so.

Register for the workshop here:

JSPG is committed to empowering minority students and early career researchers in science and technology policy debates, and uplifting the voices of those who have traditionally gone unheard in our field. We seek to engage all early career leaders in developing innovative policy and governance solutions consistent with a more diverse and equitable society.
