This month we have updates on projects COPE is involved in: retraction taxonomy, and text recycling.
Iratxe Puebla, Facilitation and Integrity Officer at COPE summarises an issue that was raised by an author who published in a COPE member journal some years ago. It describes how the concern was resolved when COPE, the publisher and the author worked together.
We’ll be discussing ethical considerations around book publishing at our next Forum and you can read more with cases, comparisons between journals and books, and questions to spark discussion in this issue. Plus the roundup of publication ethics news as gathered by COPE Council members.
