Ban Bullying in Science [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
All research institutions need a procedure for dealing with bullies. [Excerpt] [...] Reports of bullying should be fairly and thoroughly investigated, with attention to due process. Anti-bullying policies or codes of conduct for staff should be easily accessible, give clear guidance on what behaviours are and are not appropriate in the workplace, and outline the measures that would be taken if allegations are reported. Crucially, institutions need to follow these policies to the letter, regardless of whether the alleged perpetrator is the director of the institute or a first-year PhD student, to protect all those involved – including the accused, who might be the victim of malicious allegations. Incomplete or unfair investigations can undermine the credibility of an organization, harm careers and signal to bullies that their behaviour will be tolerated – in 2018 that is unacceptable.
