Education and advocacy to improve ethics, standards, and practices in paleontology

Mission

The Association for Materials and Methods in Paleontology advances paleontological research through education and advocacy for improved ethics, standards, and practices in field, laboratory, and analytical methods.


Ethics Statement

With the understanding that paleontological localities, collected specimens, and associated records represent an irreplaceable resource; members of AMMP will work actively for the preservation and long-term access to paleontological specimens, collections, and records. All actions of the member should be informed by respect for the specimens in their care and members will strive to make informed decisions based on the best of current knowledge to select materials and methods that do not adversely affect the specimen or its possibilities for future research. An AMMP member will act with transparency, honesty and respect in all professional relationships.
