Why Has COPE Developed Guidelines for Cooperation Between Journals and Research Institutions?

Elizabeth Wager.

The primary role of COPE (the Committee on Publication Ethics) is to provide advice and guidance to jour-nal editors and publishers on ethical issues. COPE also expects its mem-ber journals to follow its Code of Con-duct (1).

Key words: COPE, Guidelines
