Financial Aid Research: The Nexus of Academic, Practitioner, and Policy Work
Heller, Donald E.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v47 n3 Article 7 2017
Academic research often does not find its way into the policy arena because of the nature of the work. Policymakers often find journal articles and academic books too long, difficult to understand, and lacking in policy-relevant ideas and recommendations. This article provides suggestions to academic and other researchers on how to make their research policy relevant and most likely to have an impact on policy and practice.
