Why AIB Has a Code of Ethics

As a professional organization with the pursuit of knowledge and education as its primary aims, AIB must foster behavior from its members that is consistent with scientific integrity and universally recognized ethical norms. AIB must also ensure that its members are treated ethically in all of its official activities, structures, and processes.

The Creation of Our Code

AIB’s Code of Ethics (adopted in June 2018) is the product of a years-long development process, led by Lorraine Eden and guided by input from every level of our organization. An expert in academic ethics, Eden was tasked by AIB’s Executive Board to oversee every step of the code’s creation, from its initial drafting to its final implementation.

Building on her previous work with AIB’s Leadership Code of Ethics (2012, revised in 2019) and the JIBS Code of Ethics (2007, broadened into the AIB Journals Code of Ethics in 2018), Eden has helped establish a new standard for professional integrity within the Academy. AIB is eternally grateful to Lorraine Eden for her dedicated work on these codes.
