1 How To Increase the Impact Of Your Work…And Why It Matters Brought to you by the Civic and Public Engagement Committee (CPEC) Formerly known as the Public Policy Leadership Group

2 Forbes-- 10/7/13 “All research carried out within or supported by NIH is not equal, and the projects carried out by its NCCAM — are clearly a weak link…. many of its projects are trivial and almost all of the interventions tested have proven to be worthless.” Behavioral Science Under Attack

3 Wall Street Journal – “Most of these ill-advised projects are funded by NSF’s Social, Behavioral and Economics Directorate. The social sciences grants were evaluated with more rigor when they were organizationally within the NSF's Biology Directorate. When these grants were split off, scientific rigor gave way to cronyism and narcissistic self-regard.”

4 New York Times – “the social sciences have stagnated. They offer essentially the same set of academic departments and disciplines that they have for nearly 100 years: sociology, economics, anthropology, psychology and political science. This is not only boring but also counterproductive, constraining engagement with the scientific cutting edge and stifling the creation of new and useful knowledge.”

5 USA Today – September 30, 2013 Rethinking science funding: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, (R-VA) and Chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology and Representative Lamar Smith, (R-TX) wrote “we have recently seen far too many questionable grants, especially in the social, behavioral and economic sciences.” Rethinking science funding
