I am asking about some kind of standard well known and complete ethical codex with versions of strictness (a list of rules comparable to the creative commons licenses in the field of software/art publishing).
It seems to me that every journal has its own ethical codex stated, although all of the codexes seem to be almost the same (with minor differences). It seems a little bit silly to me.
I would like to know about something usable like:
- to tell my team: "all publishing should be done according to the ethical codex XY v1.x", or
- I would like to state in my hypothetical journal: "the journal complies with the ethical codex XY v2.x"
What am I missing? Where I can find it? Does some open ethical codex standard exist? If not, why not?
