Scopic (social contexts of pathways into crime) is a five year ESRC funded\ud programme of research which aims to achieve a better understanding of how young\ud people become involved in crime. A key consideration in a research programme of\ud this type is how best to generate policy implications from academic research. This\ud report sets out a proposal as to how this might be achieved. It begins with a brief\ud description of scopic; we then set out a framework for deriving policy implications\ud which takes into account the validity of the research, and the practicality, feasibility\ud and ethics of proposed policy options. Consideration is then given to how policy\ud implications might be made concrete. The report concludes with a case study in\ud which the model is applied to one of the early published research papers from scopic\ud and we comment on the strengths and weaknesses of this approach
