Code of Conduct

All members of the GWU PAPER lab agree to abide by certain core principles in our research both in the lab and in the field. These principles are laid out in this Code of Conduct.

We are committed to making participation in research a positive and enriching experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, or religion.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by laboratory members in person and in online spaces include the use of sexual language or imagery, derogatory comments or personal attacks, trolling, public or private harassment, insults, or other unprofessional conduct.
