JINA-CEE brings together scientists with a variety of backgrounds and interests to advance the field of Nuclear Astrophysics. This endeavor is only possible when all participants behave in a respectful, collegial manner.
We encourage all of our members to read the proposed new Code of Conduct below, and to contact Ana Becerril with any comments you may have:
JINA-CEE Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct upholds JINA-CEE's commitment to conduct scientific research and education in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements, and the highest ethical and professional standards.
The JINA-CEE collaboration is committed to providing a safe, harassment-free and discrimination-free environment for everyone. We adopt the definition of harassment by the American Astronomical Society. Harassment includes offensive comments or denigrating jokes related to nationality, gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
All JINA-CEE personnel, members, and participants, including participants at any JINA-CEE sponsored events, are expected to comply with the applicable anti-harassment, anti-discrimination, and scientific ethics laws and policies in effect at their home institutions, and the institutions they are located at. Additionally, they commit to work and interact within our collaboration in a manner that is consistent with the intent of this Code of Conduct.
In addition to any applicable reporting requirements at their home institution, any member who wishes to report a violation of this policy is encouraged to speak to or contact the appropriate principal investigator, the JINA-CEE director, Hendrik Schatz, or the JINA-CEE managing director, Ana Becerril.
Enhancing diversity and broadening participation, within nuclear astrophysics and the field of physics at large, are important goals of JINA-CEE. We strive for a culture of inclusivity and a welcoming environment to attract the best talent from around the nation and world. Diversity and inclusion are therefore goals in all center activities including research, education, and public outreach.
As a multi-institutional center, we aim to build on diversity enhancing resources, programs, and processes at the various participating institutions and complement and connect them in new and innovative ways. JINA-CEE will continue to build upon the success of JINA in recruiting and retaining a higher than average fraction of female researchers at the junior and senior levels.
We encourage you to explore the tools, resources, data, and research that we found to be helpful for rising awareness, and for making progress towards a diverse and inclusive research and teaching environment in nuclear astrophysics.
