The Transparency Project is the Division’s vehicle for making freely-available privately-funded datasets. It is the first ever public data repository for privately-funded datasets, specifically related to addictive behavior (e.g., alcohol misuse).
Industry-funded scientific studies have often come under scrutiny by researchers, advocates, the media, and the public. The unfortunate history of tampering with science by scientific sponsors has created an atmosphere of distrust. The Division seeks to improve this complex situation by increasing accessibility to privately-funded data, in hopes that it will provide the impetus for the development of public-private research partnerships while advancing addiction science.
The Division has a long history of making science publicly available beyond professional journals and like publications, actively working to make transparency the norm for information, not the exception.
