At its 18 June 2018 virtual meeting, the HSS Council endorsed the following statement on professional conduct. The statement will appear on all HSS media.
HSS believes scholarly conduct should adhere to the highest ethical and professional standards. The Society expects contributors to its publications and meetings to present original work that respects the integrity of the research process and that conforms to rigorous standards in the citation and acknowledgment of the work of other scholars. The American Historical Association’s Statement on Standards of Professional Conduct is a useful guide.
