The revised Society for Prevention Research (SPR) standards of evidence are an exciting advance in the field of prevention science. We appreciate the committee’s vision that the standards represent goals to aspire to rather than a set of benchmarks for where prevention science is currently. The discussion about the standards highlights how much has changed in the field over the last 10 years and as knowledge, theory, and methods continue to advance, the new standards push the field toward increasing rigor and relevance. This commentary discusses how the revised standards support work of translating high-quality evaluations to support evidence-based policy and work supporting evidence-based programs’ ability to implement at scale. The commentary ends by raising two areas, generating evidence at scale and transparency of research, as additional areas for consideration in future standards.
