Comments by the Committee on the Code of Practice

Terms of Reference: 

The Ethics Committee monitors unethical behaviour in research, publications and other mathematician activities. This includes, for example, plagiarism, duplicate publication, inadequate citations, inflated self-citations, dishonest refereeing, ignoring conflicts of interest, and other violations of the professional code. The Committee will be responsible for the following three tasks:

  1. To raise the awareness of the problem by preparing and updating a code of practice.
  2. To encourage journals, publishers, and funding bodies to respond to allegations of unethical behaviour in a conscientious way.
  3. To provide a mechanism whereby researchers can ask the Committee to help them pursue claims of unethical behaviour.

If you think you are a victim of unethical behaviour regarding publications as described above, please contact the Chair of the committee, Adolfo Quiros.
