The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) provides advice to editors and publishers on all aspects of publication ethics; in particular, on how to handle cases of research and publication misconduct. Wiley has a Corporate Subscription to COPE which extends to all Wiley employees, journals and associated staff. Although technically already members, in order to be able to access the member site, each journal and/or individual first need to be registered with COPE and issued a personal login.
Benefits of Membership:
- Access to the interactive eLearning course
- Advice on individual cases via the Forum
- Advice on publication ethics via ‘Ask COPE’
- Free attendance at COPE seminars and case workshops
- Use of the ethical audit tool to see how well your journal matches COPE’s guidelines
- Sample letters editors can use when dealing with problem cases
How to sign up
Wiley journals are registered with COPE as journal groups, managed by the Editor-in-Chief (the ‘manager’). The Editor-in-Chief can then invite up to 50 people to become ‘users’ associated with that journal. Users and Managers both have their own login details and can access members-only content, however, only Managers have editing rights. If you have not taken up your membership yet, please contact Elinor Ferriday, Programme Co-Ordinator, Wiley. You will be asked to complete a form which will be sent to COPE and once processed your personal login details will be sent automatically.
