Join this session for a brief overview and live demonstration of Overton.

Overton is the largest interdisciplinary index of policy documents, guidelines, think tank publications, and working papers. Use Overton to track policy-related influence and impact by seeing where research output is cited in policy, or search for policy documents themselves!

 Also, it can be a great tool to look up the impact your research has had on generating policy.
