About Publications

ISGP publications seek to bridge the increasingly critical intersection between scientific and technological understanding, and the major societal issues shaping domestic and international policies.  All publications are made freely available online; most also are available in hard copy at a small charge.

ISGP’s online library includes the 3-page Policy Position Papers written by conference presenters, and Conference Books and Reports that include (i) the policy  papers debated at that conference, (ii)  not-for-attribution summaries of the debates,  (iii) areas of consensus and actionable next steps, and (iv) additional conference information.

The ISGP has produced Strategic Roadmaps for Emerging and Persistent Infectious Diseases (EPID), and for Food Safety, Security, and Defense (FSSD), as well as a variety of White Papers that could turn into conference series.

For further information or to receive copies of the ISGP books, contact Jennifer Boice, jboice@scienceforglobalpolicy.org.
