To ensure scientific integrity, GoMRI uses National Science Board peer evaluation protocols to select funded research. Independent reviews are performed by scientific peers, not affiliated with institutions who propose projects or with BP to avoid conflicts of interest in the selection of funded research. All peer reviewers sign conflict of interest and non-disclosure agreements. BP has no role in the peer review process or selection of awards.
Individual GoMRI researchers will comply with professional standards as defined by the National Academies of Science. All GoMRI researchers conduct independent and objective research with no influence from BP. Results are published in peer reviewed scientific journals with no requirement for BP approval. Scientific results from GoMRI-funded research may be posted to the GoMRI website after peer review or publication.
