Scientific research on human development shapes public opinion and public policy. It provides support for editorial articles; it is cited by lawyers petitioning the Supreme Court; and it is the basis for policy decisions that influence the distribution of funds to educational and social programs. Political considerations often play the biggest role in policy decision, but opinion makers and policy makers lend credibility to their arguments by citing social science research.
Therefore, when we look at a news article or a policy statement we first check on the social science research the authors use to support their claims. Next, we evaluate the research they are citing to see if it supports the claims they are making (whether it is valid and reliable).
