COPE provides leadership in thinking on publication ethics and practical resources to educate and support members, and offers a professional voice in current debates.
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.
News & guidance
We describe the phenomenon, identify the key issues, describe the impact on the various stakeholders involved, analyse proposed interventions and solutions, and give COPE’s perspective on addressing the problem going forward. Please add your feedback and comments to continue this live and ongoing debate.
The theme of the seminar is “Working together: issues in scholarly research and its publication”, with plenary talks covering text recycling, post-publication corrections and the relationship between research integrity and publication ethics. Editors, publishers, authors and all those interested in publication ethics are welcome to attend.
