How Publishing Ethics Can Nurture Trust in Scholarly Publications
The Association of Learned & Professional Society Professionals are delivering this course on Tuesday 8 March and Wednesday 9 March at 09:00-12:00 (EST), 14:00-17:00 (GMT), 15:00-18:00 (CET)
A wide range of ethical issues can arise in academic publishing. These can be caused by misbehaving authors (eg committing plagiarism or fraud), by abuse of editorial positions and also by conflicts between publishers’ and societies’ commercial interests and principles of editorial freedom and integrity. The course will cover how to detect and deal effectively with possible misconduct and show the importance of having sound ethical policies. While the principles and theories covered are applicable across most publication types, some issues covered will be particularly relevant to journals publishing.
