Council Adopts New AERA Code of Ethics: Ethics Committee to Emphasize Ethics Education
Herrington, Carolyn D.
Educational Researcher, v40 n3 p120-121 Apr 2011
At its February 2011 meeting, the AERA Council adopted unanimously a new Code of Ethics. The Code articulates a set of standards for education researchers in education and provides principles and guidance by which they can build ethical practices in professional, scholarly, and scientific activities. The Code reflects the Association's strong commitment to provide standards for research, teaching, and service that are ethically sound and informative. The newly revised Code is the result of almost three years of background research and study by the members of the inaugural committee, focusing on the ethical conduct of education researchers in their professional roles. In addition to its own deliberations, the committee engaged in an extensive outreach project to elicit comments and feedback from the AERA membership. To that end, an open forum to discuss a draft version of the Code was held at the May 2010 Annual Meeting.
