Abstract

The long duration of much academic research reduces its potential to influence time-sensitive policy decisions. Can this research-policy gap be closed by delivering initial results to the policy-maker early in the research cycle? Existing evidence and new theory say yes, but only if current incentives in the profession are restructured.
