This committee monitors unethical behaviour in mathematical publications
The Ethics Committee monitors unethical behaviour in research, publication and mathematicians' other activities. This includes, for example, plagiarism, duplicate publication, inadequate citations, inflated self-citations, dishonest refereeing, failing to address conflicts of interest, and other violations of the professional code. The Committee will be responsible for the following three tasks:
- To raise awareness of the problem by preparing and updating a code of practice.
- To encourage journals, publishers, and funding bodies to respond to allegations of unethical behaviour in a conscientious way.
- 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 publication as described above, please contact the Chair of the committee, Adolfo Quiros.
