Why AIB Has a Code of Ethics
As a professional organization with the pursuit of knowledge and education as its primary aims, AIB must ensure trust and confidence in its membership through self-regulation 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 matters, activities, and structures.
AIB’s Code of Ethics is the product of a years-long development process, guided by input from every level of our organization and led by Past President Lorraine Eden. 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 and Journals Code of Ethics, Eden and her team have established new standards for professional integrity within the Academy.
