LEGEND Collaboration Statement

On Ethical Conduct of Research

As the success of the LEGEND experimental effort and the scientific reputations of all LEGEND Collaborators rely on the integrity of the published and presented results, it is imperative that all members of the Collaboration perform their research in a manner consistent with standards of ethical scientific research. To this end, members of the Collaboration agree to adhere to the American Physical Society’s APS Guidelines for Professional Conduct, and the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity. Violations of these guidelines of professional conduct by any member of the Collaboration should be brought to the attention of the SC so that potential impacts to the Collaborations research may be evaluated and to ensure no retribution is enacted upon the reporter.
