COPE brings together all those involved in scholarly research and its publication to strengthen the network of support, education and debate in publication ethics
Our core practices
Core practices are the policies and practices journals and publishers need, to reach the highest standards in publication ethics. We include cases with advice, guidance for day-to-day practice, education modules and events on topical issues, to support journals and publishers fulfil their policies.
COPE members: register for the COPE Forum on 22 June to discuss new cases submitted by members, updates to existing cases, and join in the topic discussion on the new draft discussion document "Dealing with complaints about the integrity of published research".
In which we launch the paper mills research report with STM, share thoughts on the WCRI panel discussion on When and how to report misconduct to institutions and elsewhere, and invite you to join the discussion on Dealing with complaints about the integrity of published research.
