A guide for policy work

    Article metrics

    Updated, expanded edition freely available online.

    Those considering a career in public policy now have a new edition of an existing resource to help guide their path. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has updated and expanded its 1985 Guide to Graduate Education in Science, Engineering and Public Policy.

    The fourth edition of the guide is now available for free online at http://www.aaas.org/spp/sepp. Albert Teich, the AAAS's director of science and policy programmes, says that science and technology have taken on more important roles in public policy since the guide was first published. “The need for people educated in this field has grown proportionately,” Teich says.
