The European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities (ALLEA) has published a revised edition of the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.

The Code of Conduct serves the European research community as a framework for self-regulation across all scientific and scholarly disciplines and for all research settings. As such, the 2023 Revised Edition includes updates to ensure that the European Code of Conduct remains fit for purpose and relevant to all disciplines, emerging areas of research, and new research practices. The European Commission recognises the European Code of Conduct as the reference document for research integrity for all EU-funded research projects and the European Code of Conduct increasingly serves as a model for organisations and researchers across Europe and beyond.

The changes in the 2023 revision reflect an increased awareness of the importance of research culture in enabling research integrity and implementing good research practices and place a greater responsibility on all stakeholders for observing and promoting these practices and the principles that underpin them. They likewise accommodate heightened sensibilities in the research community to mechanisms of discrimination and exclusion and the responsibility of all actors to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion. It also takes account of changes in data management practices, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and recent developments in Open Science and research assessment.

The 2023 Revised Edition is available on the ALLEA website.
