Academic Research

Developing and promoting interdisciplinary academic research and thought leadership to define the goals and challenges of compliance as a discipline

Compliance & Risk Management eJournal

In July 2016, the Center for Compliance and Ethics launched the Compliance & Risk Management eJournal in partnership with the Social Science Research Network. The goal of the Compliance & Risk Management eJournal is to encourage interdisciplinary research that uses economics, management studies, and other related techniques from the social sciences and humanities, in addition to more traditional legal analysis, to help scholars across disciplines identify, understand, and address issues and problems in compliance.
