Research Snapshot Series

CIRA's Research Snapshot series features one page summaries of completed, peer reviewed and published studies conducted by our affiliated scientists. The summaries describe the reason for the study, the key findings, and implications for practice and policy, presented in plain language. Each of the briefs also include a link to a published article in a peer reviewed journal that derives from the featured study.

If you are interested in submitting a brief for publication or just want to discuss the process, contact Pete Donohue, pete.donohue@yale.edu.
