What is unique about Social Science One’s approach?

Using company data in a way that respects the scientific process requires that individual academics have two assurances that have historically been difficult for industry to provide any one researcher simultaneously: (1) Complete freedom to publish without prior review by the company and (2) privileged access to appropriate portions of the company’s data, people, platforms and processes. Social Science One’s two-part structure – with a commission of distinguished academics as a trusted third party and forego publication and outside academics with complete freedom to publish – solves this problem. This is described in the paper at GaryKing.org/partnerships.
