In this paper, we discuss the AIS Code of Research Conduct approved by AIS Council at its December 2003 meeting. . We explain the purpose of the Code, its focus, who developed the code, and indicate the participation of many leading scholars in our community. We discuss how the Code may be used as an instrument to assist in maintaining the integrity of our journals and conference proceedings. We identify processes by which scholars who were victimized may seek redress. The adoption of this code of research conduct is as an important step in the maturing of our IS community.
