WRITING AUDIT DISCOVERY ARTICLES
Writers should focus on making their work accessible to busy readers who are experienced professionals with strong technical knowledge. It is usually not necessary to explain basic concepts and practices. But writers should be aware of common jargon or expressions in their academic communities that are not widely known or used in the regulatory or practitioner arenas. Any descriptions of research method should be non-technical and focussed on purpose, not process.
An Audit Discoveries article is not expected to cover everything included in the academic research paper. Writers should try to identify the part or parts of the findings that are most relevant to our readers. The relevance of findings in research papers may be different for regulators and practitioners. Differences in relevance to different stakeholders might require more nuanced commentary, or might be addressed by deliberately focusing on the concerns of only one stakeholder group.
The main purpose of an Audit Discoveries article is to articulate the implications of the research findings for policy, regulation, or practice. This should not be speculative or mere opinion. While it reflects your point of view, which merits high credence because it is supported by the research, it will be more persuasive if it is framed objectively and agnostically. Readers will be making their own decisions.
