Added by: A. Nozdrovická, 19.11.2018, 518 visit

ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, published today the Slovak translation of the revised edition of The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity, a document that serves the European research community as a framework for self-regulation across all scientific and scholarly disciplines and for all research settings.

The revised Code addresses recent and emerging challenges emanating from technological developments, open science, citizen science and social media, among other areas. The European Commission recognises the Code as the reference document for research integrity for all EU-funded research projects and as a model for organisations and researchers across Europe. The Code was published originally in English on 24 March 2017 and is being translated to all official EU languages.

The Code sets out principles of research integrity, criteria for good research practice, and describes how to prevent violations of research integrity. The present revision is motivated by current developments in the European research funding and regulatory landscape, changing institutional responsibilities, and evolving review procedures. In addition, the Code is applicable to expanding open access publishing, and the use of digital repositories, and takes into account new ways of communicating science and involving citizens in research. The Code seeks to empower individual researchers and a variety of research bodies, funding agencies and publishers by creating a common understanding of how research should be conducted.

The translation of the document to Slovak was conducted by the European Commission Translational Services and in collaboration with the Slovak Academy of Sciences. The original edition of the Code as well as the translated version are available on ALLEA’s website under the following links:
