ASAB is nothing without its members, and their passion for the study of animal behaviour. On ASAB Council, we are continually inspired by the many activities the membership undertakes to promote intellectually rigorous and ethical animal behaviour research. We are also very grateful for those members who publicise ASAB, encouraging students and colleagues to join us, or letting the public know what ASAB does and what it stands for. Central to that is our commitment to the highest standards of scientific and ethical integrity. As such, we would like to remind all our members that ASAB membership does not constitute an academic qualification, or any form of professional accreditation or validation. This means that “ASAB” should not be presented after a member’s name on professional documents, websites, business cards, and should not be used to imply a qualification or an accreditation.
We ask that members do not use the ASAB logo without authorisation from ASAB Council. While we are very happy for the Association to be broadly advertised, it is important that our logo is not used to suggest accreditation or approval for a website, organisation or company where none has been given. For those members seeking qualifications in animal behaviour or professional accreditation for clinical applications of animal behaviour, please visit the ASAB website for further details on Education, Ethics and the Accreditation Scheme (http://www.asab.org/ccab/). If any ASAB member feels that the ASAB logo or similar is being used to misrepresent the Association, or if there are any other enquiries, please feel free to contact the Secretary.
