The document is very short (like this post!), focussing on giving a very broad overview and pointers for where to find out more. GO-Science also cite this acronym guide produced by the British Science Association as a way of deciphering ‘who is who’ in the field. It has been noted before that its length is ridiculous – but it does give an indication of the myriad ways to get involved in discussions.
It’s worth a look. After all, as the guide says, “scientific advice and evidence is crucial for making good policy”. Do get in touch if you are a member of the Biochemical Society and want to get involved.
