Title:  Going public: Writing About Research in Everyday Language
Description: This brief describes approaches that writers can use to make impact research more accessible to policy audiences. It emphasizes three techniques: making concepts as simple as possible, focusing on what readers need to know, and reducing possible misinterpretations. A glossary of common concepts is included showing the approaches applied to a range of concepts common to impact research, such as ‘regression models’ and ‘effect sizes.’
