Digital Archive of Artists’ Publishing Code of Conduct

The Digital Archive of Artists’ Publishing (DAAP) is committed to providing a respectful and inclusive environment for everyone engaging with the archive. Reflecting a multitude of different identities, views and experiences across professional and voluntary capacities, our community involves but is not exclusive to artists, publishers, researchers, administrators, software developers, educational and institutional bodies. In order to support a nuanced discussion it is necessary that everyone employ an active practice of inclusion. For this reason all interactions in the DAAP community are covered by the following Code of Conduct.



The DAAP community is dedicated to providing a harassment-free collaborative experience for everyone. Harassment of community participants is not tolerated in any form, including event presentations, email lists, online conferences, chat groups, and in-person gatherings.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the community organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, and/or immediate expulsion from the event or communication channel. Participants requested by anyone, to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.


Please let DAAP community organisers know as soon as possible if you experience or witness anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or may be in breach of the Code of Conduct. Even if you do not want anything done, please still let us know and contact us at daap [dot] community [at] disroot [dot] org, or immediately in person. If the person who is the subject of the allegation or complaint is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident.

Thank you for helping make the DAAP community a safe and welcoming space. If you have suggestions or additions for changes to this Code of Conduct, please contact us at daap [dot] community [at] disroot [dot] org

There is always room for improvement and we appreciate your input. This code of conduct borrows extensively from existing community codes of conduct and norms of other organisations.
