JSPG & NSPN 2022 Winter Standard Issue Events
The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) and the National Science Policy Network (NSPN) are pleased to partner on the 2022 JSPG Winter Standard Issue. We especially encourage submissions that highlight policy opportunities and audiences related to the 2022 U.S. midterm elections at the local, state, or national level as well as related foreign policy issues.
Leading up to the submission deadline, JSPG and NSPN will organize a series of events to help prospective authors improve their submissions to the Winter Standard Issue.
Writing workshop: August 30, 2022: Science policy paper writing workshop. This workshop covered a variety of formats published in JSPG, including instructions for writing a number of policy pieces (memos, policy briefs and policy position papers) in the JSPG format and opportunities to develop outlines in breakout rooms.
Panel: September 15, 2022: Impactful advocacy for science policy ideas. This panel featured science policy and advocacy professionals in a variety of roles who discussed advocacy at the local, national and international levels and the impact they have achieved with their advocacy. They also provided general tips and advice for crafting effective advocacy messages around a particular policy idea.
Following the published issue, JSPG and NSPN will organize an advocacy training session and a hybrid event in Spring 2023 to feature published authors.
Workshop: February 8, 2023: Advocacy Training. This event, organized in partnership with the Union of Concerned Scientists, will train published authors in pitching their published ideas, and provide opportunities to practice their pitches in breakout rooms and receive reviewer feedback.
