Back The European Code of Conduct

The European Code of Conduct

The Committee of the PhD School approves, by agreement of 7 February 2024, the School's adherence to the European Code of Conduct for Integrity in Research.


Imatge inicial

This code serves as a model for organisations and researchers in all scientific and academic fields and aims to guide and provide a framework of self-regulation for the research community in good practice.

Good research practices are based on fundamental principles of research integrity. They guide individuals, institutions, and organisations in their work as well as in their engagement with the practical, ethical, and intellectual challenges inherent in research.

These principles include:

Reliability in ensuring the quality of research, reflected in the design, methodology, analysis, and use of resources.

Honesty in developing, undertaking, reviewing, reporting, and communicating research in a transparent, fair, full, and unbiased way.

Respect for colleagues, research participants, research subjects, society, ecosystems, cultural heritage, and the environment.

Accountability for the research from idea to publication, for its management and organisation, for training, supervision, and mentoring, and for its wider societal impacts.
