COPE is in the process of assigning DOIs (digital object identifiers) to its resources, particularly Guidelines and Flowcharts. A digital object identifier (DOI) is like a digital fingerprint and provides a permanent link to our resources on the Internet making them individually discoverable and accessible.
This month’s highlighted case is about following up duplicate submission. In COPE Forum case number 17-20, journal A was informed by journal B that an author had withdrawn an accepted manuscript because it had already been accepted elsewhere. In fact, the manuscript had been published in journal A in the previous week. Records of the two journals revealed dual submission on the same day.

This month let’s have some hellos and goodbyes. Our hellos are to COPE’s growing emphasis in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
