Text

Each Social Policy Report Brief provides a brief summary of a longer Social Policy Report, and other briefs summarize articles in special sections and issues of Child Development

SRCD policy briefs are a resource for SRCD members deciding which Social Policy Reports to read in greater depth, and have been used in coursework to provide examples of summaries of research for policy audiences. If you are not a SRCD member and would like to receive SRCD policy briefs by email, contact: policy@srcd.org.
