European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity
This code was published in March 2017 after workshops of the European Science Foundation and the All European Academies . A preamble to the code (see pdf attached below) states:
"It addresses the proper conduct and principled practice of systematic research in the natural and social sciences and the humanities. It is a canon for self-regulation, not a body of law.
It is not intended to replace existing national or academic guidelines, but to represent Europe-wide agreement on a set of principles and priorities for the research community."
The European Commission in Brussels posted an announcement and factsheet related to the Code here .
