Developed by the AIB Ethics Committee, this collection of resources is designed to introduce our members to current thought leaders in academic integrity and to provide guidance to scholars facing difficult ethical issues.
- Code of Conduct for Research Integrity - All European Academies - In addition to serving as a reference document for self-regulation standards in all EU-funded research projects, ALLEA’s Code of Conduct covers a number of emerging ethical challenges linked to new technologies, open science, and social media, among others.
- Transparency and Openness Promotion Guidelines for Journals - Center for Open Science - The Center's Guidelines for Journals offer a flexible set of standards for academic transparency, allowing academic publications to select a level of stringency that's most appropriate for their discipline. Their registered reporting guide provides instructions and resources for publications to incentivize author accuracy by eliminating the bias against negative research results.
- Ethical Decision-Making Resources - Committee on Publication Ethics - COPE provides free-to-access resources focused on guiding ethical decision-making throughout the publication process, including case studies, sample guidelines and codes of conduct, as well as instructive flowcharts for managing common policy violations. AIB Journals subscribe to the principles of COPE.
- Resources for Implementing a Results-Blind Review Process - Journal of Business and Psychology - These guidelines are designed to help academic journals assess submissions based on the overall importance of their research question and the rigor of their methodological design, thereby reducing authors’ incentives to mis-report their results.
- Seven Key Principles of Responsible Research - Responsible Research for Business and Management - The RRBM presents a “big picture” plan for restructuring the entire academic ecosystem, shifting incentives toward business and societal impact and away from insular, discipline-specific methods of assessment.
- Database of Retracted Research - Retraction Watch - This free, comprehensive database provides a comprehensive record of published research which has since been discredited. Detailed search results include the reason(s) for retraction, date retracted, and the type of retraction notice issued by the publisher.
- Code of Ethics for Researchers - World Economic Forum - Envisioned as a “universal” code of ethics, these standards are designed to be applicable across all research disciplines with an emphasis on helping the scientific community to translate their work into positive benefits for society as a whole.
