Outreach team members have produced several research briefs that serve to distill peer-reviewed journal articles authored by EFSNE team members into 2-4 page documents intended for a general audience. The briefs describe the issue(s) addressed by a particular research paper, outline the study’s objectives, methods, and findings, and discuss the implications and applications of the findings.
