Our Pledge

At OpenArchive we are committed to providing a welcoming and inspiring community for ALL! This Code of Conduct outlines the expectations of our community of contributirs for participation.

We pledge to make participation in our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity, and orientation.

We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

Our Standards

We as the community of contributors at OpenArchive strive to:

  • Be welcoming by demonstrating empathy and kindness toward other people
  • Be patient and respectful with each other even in differing opinions, viewpoints, primary spoken language of a contributor, and/or levels of professional and life experience
  • Maintain respectful, participatory, and productive relationships and conversations among members of the community
  • Giving and gracefully accepting constructive feedback
  • Accepting responsibility and apologizing to those affected by our mistakes, and learning from the experience
  • Focusing on what is best not just for us as individuals, but for the overall community

Examples of unacceptable behavior include:

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

Enforcement Guidelines

Community leaders will follow these Community Impact Guidelines in determining the consequences for any action they deem in violation of this Code of Conduct.

  1. Correction

    Community Impact: Use of inappropriate language or other behavior deemed unprofessional or unwelcome in the community.

    Consequence: A private, written warning from community leaders, providing clarity around the nature of the violation and an explanation of why the behavior was inappropriate. A public apology may be requested.

  2. Warning

    Community Impact: A violation through a single incident or series of actions.

    Consequence: A warning with consequences for continued behavior. No interaction with the people involved, including unsolicited interaction with those enforcing the Code of Conduct, for a specified period of time.
