Modeled after our Legislative Science Notes, Community Science Notes summarize the research and policy context surrounding locally important issues, including public comment periods and ballot initiatives.
The process and products related to the research, publication, and distribution of Community Science Notes supports several objectives of the Missouri Local Science Engagement Network (LSEN), including:
Community Science Notes should always contain objective and nonpartisan research information. Writers should not make policy recommendations or include information that supports or opposes any policy alternative. All Community Science Note writers should adhere to the Missouri LSEN Code of Conduct.
