Code of Ethics

Guiding principles to promote exemplary ethical standards in research and scholarship by investigators

Preamble: 

The purpose of the Code of Ethics is to provide a set of guiding principles to promote exemplary ethical standards in research and scholarship by investigators and the International Association for Dental Research (IADR).

The Code of Ethics is predicated on well-established international guidelines, such as the Declaration of Helsinki, and does not take the place of or supersede any rules, agreements, or Bylaws of the Association.

The IADR expects its members to be guided in their professional conduct by this Code. The IADR, through its Committee on Ethics in Dental Research, advises its members regarding interpretation of the Code.

The ability of the scientific community to regulate itself is critical to the maintenance of the public trust. Adherence to the Code is basic to one’s professional responsibility and commitment to an ethical pursuit of knowledge.

Members are expected to cooperate in the implementation of the Code. Misconduct casts doubt on the integrity of individuals, their institutions, and science. It is incumbent upon IADR members to take adequate measures to discourage, prevent, expose and correct unethical conduct.

Members deemed to be in violation of the Code will be sanctioned by the Association.
