IVSA Code of Research Ethics and Guidelines | Published: December 2009

10. Adherence to the Code of Research Ethics

Visual scholars have an obligation to confront, address, and attempt to resolve ethical issues according to this Code of Research Ethics, by being familiar with the Code, confronting ethical issues informally and, if necessary, formally through authoritative professional bodies and/or knowledgeable review boards. IVSA may provide consultation in the event of formal complaint or grievances, but does not act as an authoritative body. IVSA may work in cooperation with appropriate entities in the event of dispute. Efforts for resolution with fair treatment is an expected principle.
