CNL Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct is part of the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding's commitment to make the Compounders' Network List a great place to meet and interact with others around the world. By using the List, you agree to abide by our code of conduct. Your commitment to these guidelines in all of your Compounders' Network List forum postings ensures a positive experience for all participants.

All activity on Compounders' Network List is moderated and we reserve the right to reject any unprofessional or unfit request to post.

Appropriate Language: The purpose of Compounders' Network List (CNL) hosted by the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding (IJPC) is to exchange technical information and expertise about the compounding of pharmaceutical preparations. Please avoid personal attacks, slurs, and profanity in your interactions.

Relevance to Topics: Please make sure that your postings in the Compounders' Network List forum are relevant to the subject at hand. It is normal for some topics to drift from the stated subject. However, to ensure maximum benefit for everyone, we encourage you to keep your postings as close to the subject as possible.

Advertising/Solicitation: The Compounders' Network List was created as a forum for providing peer-to-peer assistance related to the preparation of pharmaceutical compounds. We ask that you refrain from posting advertisements or solicitations.

Confidentiality: Please keep in mind that the Compounders' Network List is restricted to only approved subscribers. However, emails can be forwarded, so don't post anything that you don't want the world to see. Credit card numbers, product keys, and other confidential information can easily be used for illegal or harmful purposes.

Signature: In an effort to have consistent contact information we are requesting that each post must have identification that contains the sender's name, name of pharmacy or business affiliation and a complete contact address (street, city, state and zip code) at the end of each post. Emails sent without this information or information that appears at the end of a page of posts will not be posted to the list. Additional pieces of identification such as a phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc. may also be included. We will all be more successful communicating with one another if we know who we are communicating with and have several means of contacting each other.

New Topic: If you would like to ask a new question on the Compounders' Network List please do so by addressing a new e-mail to network@lists.ijpc.com with your new subject in the subject line. By sending a new e-mail you will help keep the archives database in a searchable state. Please refrain from adding your new topic to an already existing topic thread.
