Since 2022, the JHU-UPF Public Policy Center has started publishing Policy Briefs, which offer evidence-based policy recommendations for tackling the most pressing policy issues of our time.

The first Policy Brief, entitled "Nickel and the frontiers of carbon neutrality", was published in September 2022. It accompanied the report, "The Nickel Nexus: Mapping the Frontiers of Carbon Neutrality", which was written by Daniel Macmillen Voskoboynik and JD Farrugia, supported by Christos Zografos, Marta Conde, Diego Andreucci, Isabella Radhuber, and Lucinda Cash-Gibson.
