“Guidelines and Ethical Standards” for Data Scientists

As practitioners of data science, we are expected to maintain high standards of conduct, not just to our profession but also towards the industry on a whole.

In lieu of the above, we have created this code of ethical standards for professionals in data science and analytics. This guidelines is aimed to make professionals responsible, well aware and confident about their conduct while working this field.

We believe that the overall growth of data science industry would depend on our collective self-regulation as ethical professionals and be aware towards keeping the needs of the customers and our profession as whole, first.

Ethics is all about “what is the right thing to do”. To guide behavior and help with tough decisions, we’ve crafted a Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and an Ethical Decision-Making Framework.
As practitioners of data science, we are committed to doing what is right and honorable.


Here’s the complete handbook.
