Journal management

A well-described and implemented infrastructure is essential, including the business model, policies, processes and software for efficient running of an editorially independent journal, as well as the efficient management and training of editorial boards and editorial and publishing staff

Our core practices

Core practices are the policies and practices journals and publishers need, to reach the highest standards in publication ethics. We include cases with advice, guidance for day-to-day practice, education modules and events on topical issues, to support journals and publishers fulfil their policies.

Letter from the COPE Chair: August 2019

Dear Readers,

If you have been following one of our foci this year, you will have noticed an explicit commitment to diversity and inclusivity as a COPE theme. As a strategic goal of our last plan, we interpret this commitment broadly, including geographic diversity, gender diversity, issues of racial and ethnic diversity, ableism and breadth across the disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields of scholarly publishing.
