Wouldn't that be SSPSR? Either the scientists or the study is apparently missing. Maybe both. Note that they don't actually study, they only advocate studying. 'Scientists *for the* Study.' And you're not allowed to have an acronym in an acronym. You're supposed to expand it. That would make it SSPSETIR, which looks very odd.
