Canary, Heather E.; Hansen, Kody D.; Rinehart, Marc D.; May, Kristal; Barlow, Jahn – Journal of Research Administration, 2015
Research institutions are charged with developing and managing conflict of interest (COI) policies regarding the design, conduct, and reporting of research. Prior research indicates that university researchers may not understand the purpose of these policies and may resent the time taken to demonstrate compliance. Policy communication is not a…

Dejean, Jacqueline Sylvia – Journal of Research Administration, 2015
Conflicting regulatory demands on higher education institutions (HEIs) contribute to an environment of increasing legal risk for HEIs. In addition, the increasing cost of non-compliance jeopardizes institutional viability as HEIs struggle to adjust to the pressure created by these legally-mandated changes. The legal risk to HEIs can be attributed…
