Academic Conduct

EERA is committed to upholding high academic and professional standards.

EERA expects all of its member associations to promote ethical educational research by their association members.

Any cases of alleged academic misconduct that occur in the context of ECER,
or other EERA activities, will be referred, in the first instance, to the national associations of the members concerned, via the representatives of those associations on EERA Council.

The representatives will be required to report to the Executive Committee of EERA on the outcome of actions taken.
