- Based on rigorous research, without bias or ideological motivation.
- Published in a peer-reviewed journal.
- Written in clear language accessible to lay readers.
- Timely and relevant.
- Freely available.
Please contact us if you have suggestions of additional studies, papers or surveys that meet these standards. In addition, if you feel that material that we’ve included doesn’t meet these standards or if better research on a similar topic is available, your feedback would be appreciated.
