AOSIS promotes ethical and responsible research practices:


Individual information and identifiable images

Where individual human subjects or case studies are discussed (e.g. as in medicine, psychology, and criminology), journals should protect confidentiality and should not permit publication of items that might upset or harm participants/subjects or breach confidentiality of, for example, the doctor-patient relationship. AOSIS will not publish individual information and identifiable images from patients/human subjects. We will also require explicit consent from any patients described in case studies or shown in photographs.
