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.
COPE Members: register for the Forum on 9 June for discussion and advice on cases including ethics approval and consent, unresponsive authors delaying publication, manuscript submitted based on retracted paper, can two DOIs be assigned to the same manuscript?
Guidance & discussion
#C0PEMembers: register for the Forum on 9 June 2pm BST and join us to discuss the new cases submitted by members, and our Forum discussion topic on coordinating multi-journal complaints.
