A policy brief is a piece of writing, a standalone report, designed for those interested in policy-making (e.g. officials, bureaucrats, lobbyists, donors and those working for non-governmental organisations). Policy briefs help explain the findings of research in a succinct and understandable manner to an educated audience who may not come from a research background. Optimising the understanding of your research by policy officials is one of the ways of ensuring its visibility and impact. Engaging in this form of dissemination may be challenging for many researchers. The format of policy briefs differs sharply from academic papers.
