Methods for Policy Research, Second Edition, by Ann Majchrzak and M. Lynne Markus, is a book about responsible and evidence-based policy decision making written for those interested in improving the decisions that affect people’s lives. It describes how to define policy research questions so that evidence can be applied to policy decisions, how to find and synthesize existing evidence, how to generate new evidence if needed, how to make acceptable recommendations that can solve policy problems without negative side effects, and how to describe evidence and policy recommendations in a manner that changes minds. The suggestions made throughout the book are based on the fundamental belief that evidence-based decision making is superior to decisions based purely on opinion, intuition, and emotion.

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is a book about responsible and evidence-based decision making. It describes how to define policy research questions so that evidence can be applied to them, how to find and synthesize existing evidence, how to generate new evidence if needed, how to make acceptable recommendations that can solve policy problems without negative side effects, how to describe evidence and recommendations in a manner that changes minds. This book is for the community of learners interested in improving the decisions that affect peopleAEs lives. Policies are not just the decisions made by a countryAEs rulers or elected officials; policies are also set by corporate executives, managers of department stores, and project leaders in non-profit organizations pursuing environmental protection. In this book, we derive our suggestions from the fundamental belief that evidence-based decision making is superior to decisions based purely on opinion, intuition, and emotion. If we can convince one reader to consider the evidence systematically and responsibly before making a decision, and if we can help one individual to communicate evidence and recommendations in a way that facilitates real change, then this book has achieved the goals we set for ourselves when we sat down to write it.
