The Ethics Code to be in Communication (ECC) provides guidelines to scientific communication for all users that want to use AllBioinformatics services. Every users needs to respect them from post submitting to commenting.
The general concept of ethics code establishes that the main actor in the network is the scientific operator and it needs to be free to express his opinions and support them with relevant evidence (it's suggested to not express strong opinions to keep the discussion civil). Moreover the scientific operator has to be respected for:
b) scientific status (ie through the choice of the level of communication of a post you can turn to students, young researchers, advanced researchers, professors, experts and managers, etc. ..);
c) attitude, commitment and pleasure of knowing (ie. many post may seem very simple and trivial for most users, but if they are well made any scientific topic or question deserves to be proposed and discussed;
d) for all post called "Review by a moderator" have an equal visibility of publication that takes place in a sequential order of ten at a time in the showcase gallery post;
e) in order to increase the professionalism, expertise and visibility for the operator all the scientific post at greater scientific impact will be offered to the user the opportunity to publish their work in the news section of AB.

f) all users are required to show their real identity and are not permitted nick name;
g) the communication must be only in English;
h) are welcome and published all the scientific arguments, provided they are relevant to their category and target scientific reference;
i) both during the connection in a comment of the post must be protected freedom of scientific expression. Add a unique perspective, a constructive argument, a thoughtful question or new information. Read the comments in a discussion thread before posting your own so you do not repeat what's already been said. If you find factual errors, politely point them out and explain why you believe that the statements are wrong provided it does not conflict with the points a, b, c;
j) you cite source attributing quotes and paraphrased comments to their proper sources;
k) removing, reader comments ECC that violated the spirit or our terms may be removed (or, if moderated in advance, may not be published in the first place). If we do remove something, we will remove posts generally comment, or if necessary the whole post.
