Share the poster: Get Research Right
The Get Research Right campaign of the USFA was launched in solidarity with CAUT’s Get Science Right campaign, a response to a growing outcry from researchers and academics concerned about the public consequences of Canada’s current research policies. The campaign highlights the negative impact of the federal government’s approach to research, proposes steps to support science and research of all disciplines in the public interest, and encourages Canadians to take action to protect research integrity.
