We are pleased to announce the release of our new Code of Conduct. rOpenSci’s community is our best asset and it’s important that we put strong mechanisms in place before we have to act on a report.
As before, our Code applies equally to members of the rOpenSci team and to anyone from the community at large participating in in-person or online activities.
Our new Code of Conduct has been influenced by and adapted from many sources including the Open Source and Feelings talk by Audrey Eschright, the R Consortium Community Diversity and Inclusion Working Group’s draft Code of Conduct, the Geek Feminism anti-harassment policy, our own Community Call, How do I create a Code of Conduct for my event/lab/codebase?, incident reporting forms from NumFOCUS & Jupyter, and perhaps most importantly, by community members from whom we learn so much.
We welcome your feedback in the comments and we thank you for working with us to keep rOpenSci a safe, enjoyable, friendly, and enriching experience for everyone who participates.
