COPE Digest: author name changes | new cases, January 2021 (Volume 9, Issue 1)

As we settle into 2021, COPE is planning a series of virtual interactive workshops, webinars, a virtual seminar, along with our regular quarterly Forums, with our first on Tuesday 23 March. In this issue we share the new and updated cases from the Forum and the discussion on next steps in predatory publishing. In response to an increase in cases and queries about author name changes after article publication, COPE formed a working group to develop guidance and Rachel Safer updates us on the aims of this guidance. We welcome a guest article on 'A vision for a more trans-inclusive publishing world' which describes the high level principles for name changes in publishing, and also gives detail on why this is important and much needed.
