Art of Science Podcast Interview Series

Art of Science (AoS) explores the art of the research process leading to scientific publication by interviewing scholars with recent publications in the Policy Studies Journal. AoS is meant to break down the mystique of research for early career researchers, by highlighting the process of research, from idea to publication, rather than focusing only on publications.

Conversations with scholars will show how failures, and the problem solving associated with them, can ultimately lead to publication success. AoS aims to be a resource through which scholars can receive honest advice about the research process that lies somewhere in between art and science.

AoS is a co-production of the Policy Studies Journal and the Center for Policy Design and Governance.
