The JMN works hard to create an environment that fosters the strictest scientific and ethical standards. The fundamental principles of research integrity, or responsible conduct of research, include honesty in all aspects of research; scrupulous care, thoroughness, and excellence in research practice; transparency and open communication; and care and respect for all participants in and subjects of research.

  • Honesty in gathering data; using and acknowledging the work of others; presenting research goals, intentions, and findings; reporting on research methods and procedures; and conveying valid interpretations and making justifiable claims based on research findings.

  • Scrupulous care, thoroughness, and excellence in performing research and using appropriate methods; adhering to an agreed protocol where appropriate; drawing interpretations and conclusions from the research; and communicating the results.

  • Transparency and open communication in the reporting of research data collection methods; the analysis and interpretation of data; making research findings widely available; and presenting the work to other researchers and to the general public.

  • Care and respect for all participants in and subjects of research, including humans, animals, the environment, and cultural objects; and the stewardship of research and scholarship for future generations.
