Accepting Publication Restrictions in Research

It is NC State University policy to preserve the right of our faculty and students to freely publish the results of research performed, regardless of the funding source.  Exceptions to this policy may be made if US Government research contracts require restrictions on publication or dissemination of research findings for National Security reasons.   US Department of Defense (DOD) entities do this by including Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFARS) clause 252.204-7000 Disclosure of Information, to research contracts. The diagram below outlines NC State’s process to identify and address such dissemination.
