CI is an exceptionally valuable resource, to the academic community, and to research activists in non-profit organisations (and there is some overlap between these). The research is thorough, and there has been a tremendous improvement in technical skill over the years. It is also timely, in the sense of allowing rapid feedback over new policy development and implementation.
