Research policy and independence

The Aristotle Foundation is an independent, nonpartisan, charitable educational and public policy research organization, supported by individuals, businesses, and foundations. We do not perform contractual research; we do not seek nor accept government funding.

The Foundation has internal policies to ensure research is empirical, scholarly, ethical, rigorous, honest, and contributes to the advancement of knowledge and the creation, application, and refinement of knowledge about public policy. Our staff, research fellows, and scholars develop their research in collaboration with the Aristotle Foundation’s staff and research director. Fact sheets, studies, and indices are all peer-reviewed. Subject to critical peer review, authors are responsible for their work and conclusions. The conclusions and views of scholars do not necessarily reflect those of the Board of Directors, donors, or staff.
