There is worldwide concern over COVID-19 and its impact on our daily lives, both personal and professional. Journal editors may be unsure of what to do in this unprecedented situation. How is COVID-19 affecting editors and publishers?
Read COPE's April Digest where Deborah Poff, COPE Chair, considers the impact on editors and publishers and how some are adapting. We publish four new publication ethics cases which were recently discussed by members at the COPE Forum and updates to four cases discussed last year. We welcome new COPE Council members who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the positions, and call out for applications to help us in two newly created COPE Trustee posts. With a roundup of publication ethics news including articles on diversity and inclusion, preprints, research culture and coronavirus.
