Welcome!
2
This is a work in progress, inspired by the Science Advice to Governments conference in Auckland, New Zealand on August 27-28, 2014.
3
We've created a draft wikipedia page called "science advice" which is being reviewed.
4
Michelle Kovacevic (@kovamic) and Kim Nicholas (@KA_Nicholas) decided to start a list of top science advisors to get a better idea of the key players.
5
Others on Twitter (@SiouxsieW, @DrSMMorgan, @sarb) expressed enthusiasm and have been working on adding to the list- all help is welcome!
6
As a starting point, Kim took the list of country members and their national academy from ICSU. Some countries have the president of their national academy as the top science advisor, but many countries have other structures, so this is just a starting point.
7
Please keep this list transparent by adding sources (URLs) for your information so others can follow up where interested.
8
One possible use of this list will be to examine the gender balance of science advisors (Kim asked a question of a seven-person, all-male panel at the conference regarding the need to diversify science advising.)
9
We plan to make this a Wikipedia page as soon as we have a reasonable list to contribute (stay tuned for updates there).

Meanwhile, thanks for your help in adding names and links as you can, and thanks for suggestions to improve!

Please tweet any questions to @KA_Nicholas.
