We hope COPE members will find the new audit tool helpful. Journal Editors who were involved with the pilot said it was useful and one said it covered things she'd been meaning to do for ages! Although we're not asking you to share your findings with us (it's an audit not a survey), we would welcome any comments on how we could improve the audit, so I thought I'd start this blog string so you can add your comments or suggestions.
We plan, eventually, to add lots more links to useful resources and perhaps develop some standard wording that journals could incorporate into their instructions or adapt to meet their needs. So please let us know if you have any suggestions for these.
Update 5 March 2009
The audit tool is a member benefit of COPE. This blog was posted before all blogs were made public. To access the tool, you need to be a member of COPE and login.
