Since last year, we have continued to develop a series of documents that explores the topic of sharing knowledge (especially, public health knowledge) in the context of public policy development.
In addition to the document that provides an overview of the processes through which knowledge can influence public policy (a topic we also discussed and illustrated during a webinar), we have also published:

- a mapping of the knowledge-sharing contexts studied in the documents selected for our literature review on this topic;
- an interactive table that makes it possible to sort these 105 documents by type of context studied; and,
- a short document that presents a ready-to-copy combination of keywords, intended for those who wish to identify documents on knowledge sharing targeting public policies through the OVID, EBSCO and ProQuest interfaces.

Forthcoming in 2016: The first thematic-analysis document based on our literature review (with more to follow), dealing with how the advisors of policy makers handle scientific knowledge. In December 2016 we will present a webinar
on the same topic with a special focus on the situation in Canada.
