Publication Ethics

  1. Publication is the final stage of research and therefore a responsibility for all  researchers.
  2. Scholarly publications are expected to provide a detailed and permanent  record of research.
  3. Because publications form the basis for both new research and the  application of findings, they can affect not only the research community but also,  indirectly, society at large.
  4. Researchers therefore have a responsibility to ensure that  their publications are honest, clear, accurate, complete and balanced, and should avoid  misleading, selective or ambiguous reporting.
