Did you know that you can now download a unique COPE logo for your journal or website?
On the COPE website, you can download a COPE logo with your membership number included and the date you joined COPE. This will demonstrate that you are a genuine member of COPE, and will send a signal to authors and reviewers that your journal upholds the highest ethical standards, that you intend to follow the standards as outlined in COPE’s Core Practices and that you will take appropriate action in cases of possible misconduct.
If you want to add some wording to your logo, we usually suggest the following: "This journal is a member of, and subscribes to the principles of, the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) www.publicationethics.org"
You can download the logo at optimised resolutions for print or the web.
Here’s how to do it:
- Log onto the COPE website as a member (you need to be the "manager" of your journal group)
- Go to your journal page.
- On the right hand navigation bar, click “COPE logo download”.
- Download low and high resolutions of your personalised COPE logo.
