Code of Conduct

1.
Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

2.
Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Focusing on what is best for the community
  • Showing empathy towards other community members


Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

3.
Our Responsibilities

Article and group maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Article maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject prose, code, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to report any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

4.
Scope

This Code of Conduct applies both within articles, groups, and in public spaces when an individual is representing the article, the group, or its community. Examples of representing a article or group include acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of an article/group may be further defined and clarified by the article/group maintainers.

5.
Enforcement

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at team@nextjournal.com. The project team will review and investigate all complaints, and will respond in a way that it deems appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Article or group maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.
