Policy on Research Integrity

The George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center, as part of the George Washington University, is subject to University policies regarding integrity of research and conflict of interest. The GW Regulatory Studies Center scholars independently pursue high quality research to illuminate regulatory theory, policy, and practice; the Center does not take institutional positions on issues. To maintain its independence and the quality and integrity of its products, the GW Regulatory Studies Center does not accept funding that stipulates predetermined results or that limits dissemination of its scholarly activity or research. While the Center occasionally files public comments on specific regulations, it does so from the perspective of the public interest, and will not accept direct funding for individual comments.
