SciPol.org is a non-partisan, public website dedicated to tracking and analyzing science and technology policy across a range of fields. We additionally offer resources to help individuals better engage with or find employment in science policy. We focus primarily on science policy from the United States federal government; we occasionally cover state or international policy in addition to voluntary policies or policy suggestions offered by industry, academic, and nonprofit entities.
SciPol.org provides timely and quality information to a broad audience of academics, policymakers, businesses, journalists, nonprofits, and general members of the public. We deliver thorough, comprehensive, and accurate explanations of the latest science policy to better inform society about such policies that may eventually impact their daily lives. We do not offer policy suggestions, nor do we endorse or oppose any specific policy we discuss on the site.
