Policy Insights from the Behavioral and Brain Sciences (PIBBS) presents research and scientific reviews relevant to public policy. The articles allow scientists to share research that can help build sound policies, allow policymakers to provide feedback to the scientific community regarding research that could address societal challenges, and encourage the scientific community to build models that seriously consider implementation to address the needs of society.

Published in association with the Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (FABBS), PIBBS challenges behavioral and brain scientists to build theoretical models that seriously consider obstacles to implementation so that the needs of society can be addressed. We are particularly interested in addressing policymakers in government and funding organizations who are thinking about gaps in scientific knowledge and want to encourage development of the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior in targeted directions.

Policy Insights from the Behavioral and Brain Sciences (PIBBS), in association with the Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (FABBS), publishes invited articles that present brief reviews of scientific findings relevant to public policy. The goal of this journal is to provide a vehicle for scientists to share research findings to help build sound policies, and allow those who design policies or implement research findings to provide feedback to the scientific community regarding the challenges and types of research that could address them. PIBBS challenges behavioral and brain scientists to build theoretical models that seriously consider obstacles to implementation so that the needs of society can be addressed. We are particularly interested in addressing policymakers in government and funding organizations who are thinking about gaps in scientific knowledge and want to encourage development of the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior in targeted directions.
