Committee on Publication Ethics

COPE was founded in 1997 to provide a discussion forum and advice for scientific editors. It aims to find practical ways of dealing with the issues, and to define and develop best practice in the ethics of scientific publishing. These guidelines should be useful for authors, editors, editorial board members, readers, owners of journals, and publishers. http://www.publicationethics.org.uk/guidelinesethics.org.uk/guidelines
