This template can be used for published journal articles and policy papers submitted to government.
Note to researchers: Please draft your description in a manner that would provide colleagues working in government to appreciate the relevance of your work for evidence-based decision making for policy and programs. Your draft will be reviewed by a member of the CRDCN central staff team that has an academic research background. Any revisions will be confirmed with you before the final version is put into the designed template being used for all CRDCN research-policy snapshots. Please note that CRDCN will accept a maximum of 2 snapshots per author per issue. Only articles published in the current or previous calendar year can be accepted for a snapshot.
Each snapshot will be given a persistent identifier to encourage/support government colleagues to cite the research and the format will be:
