Abstract

When we sideline social science and hand policy decisions over to biomedical disciplines, we ignore crucial tools that can help us to manage a pandemic. Simon Lohse (University of Lübeck) and Stefano Canali (Politecnico di Milano) look at why the social scientists need a seat at the table, and how they might get it.
