ARANDA, Claudia; BARRIENTOS, Gustavo  and  DEL PAPA, Mariano C. Código deontológico para el estudio, conservación y gestión de restos humanos de poblaciones del y pasado. Rev Arg Antrop Biol [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.2, pp.111-113. ISSN 1514-7991.

This Code of Ethics defines the set of regulations agreed by the members of the Asociación de Antropología Biológica Argentina in relation to the study, conservation and management of human remains from past populations. It is based on the fact that specialists, in pursuing their activities, should consider a number of premises in connection with both their rights and obligations towards the community, the profession and its study object. It highlights that human remains stored in museum and scientific institutions should be treated with dignity, sensitivity and respect, taking into consideration the sociocultural environment in which they perform their tasks. In turn, this Code establishes the necessary requirements for undertaking any study or treatment of human remains from an ethical perspective. Finally, it encourages positive interaction with those segments of society which claim some sort of relationship with specific human remains, at all times considering the national and provincial regulations currently in force.

Keywords : Teological collections management; Professional code; Ethics; Investigation.
