On March 7, the ISSP welcomed over 70 researchers and practitioners to the latest in a series of panel discussions on the new federal government’s commitment to evidence-based decision-making. The focus of this broad-ranging discussion was moving from the “what” of science advice structures in government to the complex question of “how” scientific evidence is used in decision-making. The panel discussed exploring the various approaches to implementing the new federal government's commitment. A planned third panel discussion will explore the potential for open-data initiatives, including open access to journals and open data to transform evidence-based decision-making.
