RESPECT for standards: database of organisations


Interactive database of professional organisations

This database of professional bodies includes more than 250 organisations. To document the international character of socio-economic research and account for the fact that ethical and professional codes are much more common in Anglo-Saxon countries, we included organisations from all parts of the world. A special focus, however, was put on the EU and EU accession states. Organisations are listed according to the countries or regions they are representing, including Europe-wide and international bodies.

The database includes the following information:

  • name of the organisation

  • country it is representing

  • website address, or if not available post address

  • email address

  • existence of a code

  • code website address

  • existence of an ethics committee or committee for professional conduct

  • contact person.

This facility was added and checked in January 2004. The contents in table form may also be accessed in the final report.
