PEP Steering Committee Member Linda Tropp's book, Making Research Matter: A Psychologist's Guide to Public Engagement, has been released by APA books. Tropp's edited volume gathers a wide range of well-known experts, including PEP Director, Amy Schalet, to discuss how researchers can impact a broader audience, by lending their scientific expertise to pressing social issues, current events, and public debates. With pointers on talking to the media, testifying as an expert witness, dealing with governmental organizations, working with schools and students, and influencing public policy, this volume helps social scientists forge the vital link between scholarship and public engagement. Contributors include prominent scholars with wide-ranging areas of expertise, including academic psychologists, government officials, and leaders of professional organizations. Tropp also cites the Public Engagement Project in the book's introduction as a source of inspiration. The book is available for sale here and here.
