Which of the following statements is true regarding the regulations that govern research?
A. International research is governed by the United Nations instead of any specific country’s regulations.
B. The research of an international graduate student enrolled at a U.S. university is not governed by U.S. regulations unless the student plans to publish the results.
C. U.S. funded research collaborations are often governed by U.S. regulations no matter where the research takes place.
D. International research collaborations involving U.S. funded researchers are not governed by U.S. regulations when the work takes place at a private university.
The correct answer is option C.
U.S. funded research collaborations are often governed by U.S. regulations no matter where the research takes place.
A group of scientists from different countries do a research collaboration. They use collaborative efforts to get new scientific discoveries.
In most cases, it is the final decision of that person who is funding the research, how they have to reveal the conclusion of the study to the public.
Therefore, the research that is funded by the U.S government is controlled by the United States government, even if the research is not conducted in the U.S and is conducted in another country.
