Hong Kong University join COPE’s pilot initiative

(15 November 2017) Hong Kong University is now part of COPE’s pilot that will help form a membership package of support and advice for research institutions.

Other institutions already part of the pilot are: CaltechOttawa Hospital Research Institute and University of Ottawa, and Queensland University of Technology.

The pilot follows requests from our current membership and from researchers, authors and reviewers to work together in improving integrity in the publication of research. The intention is that COPE in the future can offer consistent support and advice to institutions in handling publication ethics issues.

COPE pilot partners have helped revise the COPE Guidelines for Peer Reviewers and are undertaking research to further understand the needs of institutions.

The announcement is here.
