A guide to expected behavior and civility in the Pleiades community.

All Pleiades users are expected to maintain civility, fairness, and professional respect for each other, and to exercise good judgment and account for their behavior with respect to use of the Pleiades system, contributions of content and interactions with other users. In particular, the Senior Editors will encourage and enforce the following principles, in accordance with the Pleiades Contributor Agreement.

Editorial Policy

The Managing and Senior Editors are final arbiters of publication decisions. Their expectations for content originality and documentation are outlined in the Citation Policy document.


Being rude, insensitive or petty makes people upset and stops Pleiades from working well. Be careful to avoid offending people unintentionally, and apologize if you do.


Do not stop other users from making full use of Pleiades by making threats, nitpicking good-faith edits, repeated annoying and unwanted contacts, repeated personal attacks or posting personal information.

Dispute resolution

Please contact the Managing or Senior Editors to help resolve disputes.

No personal attacks

Do not make personal attacks anywhere in Pleiades. Comment on content, not on the contributor. Personal attacks damage the community.


Vandalism is any addition, deletion, or change to content (or disruption in services) made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity or availability of Pleiades. It is inappropriate behavior for a collaborative undertaking.
