Some guidelines concern all areas of research, but there are also codes and guidelines which concern specific scientific disciplines or areas.
Some scientific areas can have domain-specific challenges when it comes to research integrity. That is why it can be important to have more specific guidelines than those available in domain-general guidelines.
In particular, those research areas in which practitioners also offer services to clients, such as sociologists, psychologists, or statisticians, have well-established domain-specific codes of conduct.
A non-exhaustive repository for discipline-specific codes can be found here (1).
