Physics: Ethics in Scientific Information
Physics Professional's Code of Conduct
Since there is no formal code of conduct for physics, one might read the Chemist's Code since many principles are transferrable.
"The Chemist's Creed," was approved by the ACS Council in 1965. The principles of The Chemist’s Code of Conduct were prepared by the Council Committee on Professional Relations, approved by the Council (March 16, 1994), and replaced "The Chemist's Creed". They were adopted by the Board of Directors (June 3, 1994) for the guidance of Society members in various professional dealings, especially those involving conflicts of interest. The Chemist’s Code of Conduct was updated and replaced by The Chemical Professional’s Code of Conduct to better reflect the changing times and current trends of the Society. It was approved by Council on March 28, 2007 and adopted by the Board of Directors on June 2, 2007.
