Best practice guidelines on publishing ethics
The strength of a journal is often directly related to the strength of its ethics. One of the most challenging and rewarding jobs as editor is to be the guardian of the journal's ethics.
The aim of these guidelines is to support all those involved in scholarly publishing by providing a summary of best practice guidance with respect to research integrity and publishing ethics, from leading organizations around the world. These guidelines are written for researchers, in their various roles as editors, authors and peer reviewers; for societies; librarians; funders; corporations; publishers; and journalists. In updating and expanding the guidelines, the authors worked with members of Wiley’s Integrity and Publishing Group (IPG) who have expertise in handling issues in research integrity and publishing ethics. The authors recognize that different disciplines have different practices, and that one size does not necessarily fit all. Where guidelines have a particular application to one discipline or group of disciplines, the authors have aimed to identify this clearly in the text. NOTE: When this resource is going to be used in the context of the subtopic "Peer review", please keep in mind that it is written for editors, publishers, and researchers, but that they can provide an example of practices and procedures that can also help RPOs.
