RPG Research is a 501(c)3 non-profit research and human services charitable organization. it's roots begin in the 1970s with early research on optimizing the role-playing game experience, expanding in the 1980s with research into the effects of role-playing games upon participants and uses in educational settings. In the late 1980s and early 1990s research expanded to include at-risk, high-risk, incarcerated, and special populations. In 2004 RPG Research's founder launched the RPG Research Project website, aggregating all of the world's research on all role-playing game formats: tabletop, live-action, electronic, and hybrids.
In 20017 the RPG Research Project was incorporated as the 501(c)3 non-profit charity RPG Research.
