What are the benefits of COPE membership?
COPE has been reviewing how we communicate with our members, in particular with regards to our quarterly newsletter, Ethical Editing, which we decided to discontinue after the publication of the winter 2012 issue. Since then, we have been considering its replacement, and have decided to publish a monthly online newsletter in an easily accessible format. We are keen to receive your feedback, click on Learn More for more details of what we are considering as well as how to send us your comments.
