The committee is also responsible for monitoring opportunities for funded research related to literacy and promoting and facilitating efforts to seek available funding. The committee encourage and promotes the conduct and broad dissemination of ethical literacy research without undo restrictions, commercialization, and conflict of interest, including the dissemination of literacy research online.
