Abstract: Graduate students and young scholars with a passion for making a difference in the real world through research are often advised to put those dreams to rest until after tenure. This contributes to the enduring frustration on both sides of the ‘€œtheory‘€“policy gap‘€ but it is sound advice‘€“as of right now tenure decisions tend not to take into account publications appearing in policy outlets. However, the job market‘€“and some of the most important mechanisms used for making promotion decisions in academia‘€“suggest good strategic reasons for trying to have your research influence policy as early in your career as possible.
