ASU, National Academies publish science policy magazine

Senior Sustainability Scientist Daniel Sarewitz will assist the re-branding and editing of the U.S. National Academies' quarterly magazine, Issues in Science and Technology. Sarewitz aims to address the current challenges of using science and technology to shape policy and how policy impacts our everyday lives.

"We will be publishing really interesting, well-written, provocative articles about questions of science, technology, society and policy, articles that will continue to expand the audience for Issues in Science and Technology," Sarewitz says. "We want everyone who is concerned about the future to recognize why these questions should be at the forefront of their attention."

Sarewitz, also the co-director of ASU's Consortium for Science and Policy Outcomes, says the new partnership will bolster ASU's presence in D.C. and expand the science-policy discussions outside Washington.
