COPE provides leadership in thinking on publication ethics, 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.
