More on Codes of Conduct

The ESF has recently published a code of conduct

I have blogged here previously about various Codes of Conduct for Scientists (see Promoting the ethical conduct of Science). This is a short update to add links to a number of other Codes of Conduct, including a recent addition from the European Science Foundation. There is no particular selection criteria in operation regarding the Codes listed here, beyond:
(i) I’m aware of them,
(ii) they have relevance for bioscientists.

The Codes are listed in alphabetical order according to the responsible organisation. Please let me know if you are aware of obvious omissions.

American Society of Microbiology Code of Ethics (revised 2005)

European Science Foundation/ALL Europe Academies The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (2011)

Government Office for Science (UK) Rigour, Respect, Responsibility: A universal ethical code for scientists (2007)
