[Comment] Strategic science with policy impact

Evidence-based policy making is an important aspirational goal, but only a small proportion of research has the policy impact it might have. Most researchers are not trained to create policy impact from their work, engagement with policy makers is not encouraged or rewarded in most settings, and the communication of scientific findings occurs within the academic community but rarely outside it. There are exceptions, but little is done to systematically link scholarship to policy.
