We say a fond farewell to our Council Members who have reached the end of their term with COPE and we would like to thank them for all the work they have done over the past few years.
Between them, they have been involved in: leadership roles within COPE; developing guidance; speaking at events across the globe; translating resources; raising the profile of publication ethics in their communities; voices in the direction, development and discussion of COPE guidance and advice. Our thanks for their wisdom, insight and the huge amount of work they have contributed voluntarily.
