Washington, DC - The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) is proud to announce a partnership with the National Science Policy Group (NSPG), a national network of student-run science policy organizations.

NSPG, which began as a network of student groups from Massachusetts to California, serves as a platform to connect science policy groups composed of graduate students, postdocs and young researchers who are passionate about science and engineering policy. Through the group, students and young scholars can share ideas, professional development tools and best practices with each other. The organization also assists those who are interested in forming a science policy student organization at their university.

The Journal of Science Policy & Governance will serve as a forum for NSPG members to publish peer-reviewed policy memos, policy analyses, technology assessments and op-eds on variety of science policy topics ranging from climate change and space policy to technology transfer and STEM education.

"We are incredibly excited to be partnering with NSPG. Together, we can help students publish innovative ideas and in doing so, give them a stronger voice in the policy process" said Max Bronstein, CEO & Founder of the Journal of Science Policy & Governance. Samuel Brinton, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the NSPG, said, “NSPG is thrilled to begin our next stage of development with Partners like JSPG. Our student network continues to grow with new student groups starting at campuses across the nation thanks to the support of our Partners." The Journal of Science Policy & Governance joins the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as the second organization to partner with NSPG.
