"Epistemic hygiene" consists of practices meant to allow accurate beliefs to spread within a community and prevent less accurate or biased beliefs contained. The practices are meant to serve an analogous purpose to normal hygiene and sanitation in containing disease. "Good cognitive citizenship" is another phrase that has been proposed for this concept[1].
