R Epidemics Consortium (RECON) Code of Conduct Reporting Form
To report on any potential violation of our Code of Conduct (
), please fill out this form to the best of your ability - one report per incident (per date, per time and per location). The results of this form, including the reporter's identity, are shared only within the RECON Code of Conduct Committee - members of this are currently Charlie Whittaker (
) and Claire Thompson (
) whilst recruitment for the Code of Conduct Committee takes place.
Alternatively, you may email
, which will go to all three of the Committee members named above. You may also make a report directly to one member of the Committee by contacting them directly. If any member of the Committee has a conflict of interest with a report, they will be recused and will not have access to the content or process of the report follow-up, which will be handled by the other two members of the committee.
Upon submitting your report, you will receive a copy of your responses via email. You should receive a separate acknowledgement of receipt via email from the Code of Conduct Committee within 24 hours on weekdays, or within 48 hours for an event that takes place on a weekend. Please email
if you have not received this acknowledgement. The Committee will investigate your report and follow up according to our Code of Conduct with the aim of making a decision and implementing enforcement as soon as is reasonably possible.
Note: This form and reporting mechanism is based on the format developed by rOpenSci, and we are indebted to them for this.
