To fulfill the purpose of the Society, all members shall act as responsible scholars and make efforts to establish a scientific environment with an atmosphere of freedom, trust, and mutual respect. Accordingly, this Code of Ethics is enacted to define the ethical principles that all members of the Society shall adhere to, and to establish the actions that can be taken when a member violates this Code. Further details are given by the Society’s regulations on ethics.

The term “research misconduct” includes falsification, improper manipulation, plagiarism, unethical authorship, duplicate use of data, unethical peer review, etc. in conducting research and reporting and presenting research results.


2. Moral ethics.
