How do articles in scholarly journals influence national security policy? What purposes do policy-relevant articles serve? Why should scholars in the social sciences write and publish policy-relevant articles on problems in national and international security? The experience of International Security offers lessons for how scholarly articles influence national security policy. International Security has published a higher proportion of policy-relevant articles than any other scholarly journal of international relations and foreign policy.
