In this post of the brainstorming future science 2.0 series, we expand the idea of the integrated article of the future to the actual usage of the scientific evidence in policy-making. In 2030, good governance practice will require politicians and civil servants to make explicit reference to scientific evidence integrated in any policy decisions. Not only scientific articles, but strategic documents and politicians speeches will enable readers direct access to the evidence (articles and data) that justify a certain claim, including critical pieces of evidence. It will be possible to seamlessly browse between the policy documents and the underlying data through open standards, which will further enable the flourishing of fact-checking apps to discuss on the validity of the statements. Even more, this “seamless” process will enable to directly show the stakeholders positions and discussions on the specific topic – expanding towards the policy debate.
