Provider: Committee on Publication Ethics
Descriptions: COPE is a forum for journal editors and publishers of peer-reviewed journals, facilitating discussion of all aspects of publication ethics. It also advises editors on handling cases of research and publication misconduct, providing open-access flowcharts that are useful guides to the steps for action in such cases. COPE also makes available its codes of conduct and best practices guidelines for journal publishers and editors, as well as the records of all cases that have been discussed by the committee since its inception in 1997. An open-access newsletter features a "case of the month" and reports news regarding ethical issues, including article retractions. There are downloadable presentations given at COPE seminars. Many of the materials publicly available on this site may well be of equal interest to authors. For those who join COPE, even more resources are available, including online learning opportunities.
