Openness in Research

1.10 Openness in Research

Boston University is committed to freedom of access for all interested persons to the underlying data, processes, and final results of research through the publication and broad dissemination of those results. As evidence of that commitment, on February 11, 2009, the University Council passed a resolution concerning the free and open exchange of scholarship. Openness requires that Boston University not undertake on the campus classified research or research whose results may not be published without prior approval by the sponsor. Openness also requires that, unless prohibited by law, no restriction on participation in research be based on country of origin or citizenship. Any exceptions to this must be approved by the Associate Vice President for Research Compliance or the University Provost or Medical Campus (MED) Provost, as appropriate.
