Interested in Contributing a Brief?
Ballard Brief is a social issue library/database with a collection of briefings intended to educate people on:
• The complex causes and consequences of a social issue.
• Important and impactful practices within a social issue
Each briefing should provide a starting point for people to understand the complexity of a social issue and evaluate solutions addressing it. This should be done in such a way that an everyday person will be able to make an informed decision on how they could get involved with a particular social issue.
We hope that providing this information in a clear, accurate, and accessible way will enable changemakers, philanthropists, and citizens to create positive social change within their respective spheres of influence.
Ballard Brief is not a forum for people to spread subjective opinions about social issues and interventions. Our acceptance and editorial processes are rigorous. We will not accept papers with content and claims driven by ideology or personal connections instead of data. To write a brief, you need to set aside preconceived notions, biases, and emotions about a topic. To achieve respect and general reputation as a reliable source we require evidence-based content.
