Code of Ethics

EARLI is committed to provide the best possible circumstances in which its members can positively and safely share their research and exchange their ideas.

We have a number of policies in place to support this ongoing endeavour. Should you wish to comment on any of these policies or alert us of any conduct or behaviour in direct violation of these policies, kindly reach out to the EARLI careteam.

EARLI strongly believes that the diverse composition of its members, regardless of their background, gender, ethnicity or any other distinguishing characteristic, contributes to the richness of our activities. EARLI is, therefore, committed to encouraging equity, diversity and inclusion across our association and our activities, and eliminating discrimination.

Inclusion and Diversity Pledge - Educational Research Review

The Editorial Board of Educational Research Review is guided by research excellence and our commitment to having a Board that is representative of our research community directly supports that goal. We are highly committed to ensuring gender balance and a broad representation of geographies on our Board, and have concrete plans to allow the space for early career researchers to flourish and be represented on our Board. Our efforts for diversity and inclusion have only increased over the years, and we aim to continue to work towards a Board that more accurately reflects the diversity of our community in future.
