For a research project to be approved, it must have technical merit, be of interest to CCL, and be conceptually and methodologically sound. Approval decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Acceptance of the proposal will in no way limit CCL’s ability to conduct future research in similar areas of inquiry.
