The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity


The All European Academies (ALLEA) federation prepared the new European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity whose aim is to promote the responsible conduct of research.


The EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas said about the publication:

"The Commission's recent White Paper on the Future of Europe shows that we need knowledge and innovation to respond to global challenges and to address the needs of people in the European Union. The public needs full trust in science, and this can only be achieved if the highest level of research ethics and integrity are guaranteed. This goes hand in hand with our Open Science agenda to ensure open access to scientific publications and data. I warmly thank ALLEA and its member academies for producing this new Code of Conduct for Research Integrity. I am sure it will serve as a model for organisations and researchers across Europe."


The Code consists of 3 chapters:

1. Principles

2. Good Research Practices

3. Violations of Research Integrity


The document is available at the ALLEA website.
