In the middle of 2019, the Office of DVC Research, Innovation and Enterprise mooted publishing the Kenya Policy Briefs as a strategic vehicle to bridge the gap between research output from academia and Kenyan policymakers.
Although three months late, the electronic submission, review, and dissemination platform is now fully operational and online, and the first issue, Volume 1, Issue 1, January 2020, has now been published.
We initially planned to publish twice a year (January and June). To facilitate timely dissemination of research results, we have enhanced the publication schedule to three times a year (January, May and September).
The May issue is already under preparation and shall be published in the coming weeks. We therefore invite you to submit manuscripts for the September issue through the online system.
The January 2021 Issue (Volume 2, Issue 1) shall be dedicated to research-based policy briefs on the COVID-19 pandemic that has, in many ways, permanently changed how we work and go about our daily lives.
We welcome you on this journey and encourage you to share and tweet this information through your networks.
