Module 2: Publishing ethics for editors

Session Summary

Publishing ethics are a frequent concern for many journals, and the issues range from small annoyances to large-scale problems which can have a dramatic negative impact on both the publications and the people involved. It is always better to avoid problems than to try and remedy them, and this
workshop will consider strategies and policies journals can introduce to mitigate the possibility of ethical problems.

The workshop will consider some of the most common ethical issues such as duplicate and plagiarised publications, author, editor and reviewer ethics, data and artwork manipulation and misinterpretation. The workshop will look at ways in which problems can be mitigated, and how they (if they happen) can be resolved effectively and efficiently.


This brand new four-module online training course is exclusive to EASE members, and has been designed in a collaboration between our Training Committee and our Regional Chapters.

It will be delivered simultaneously in four countries, with local language support and moderation from our Chapter leadership to ensure the greatest accessibility and effectiveness of the training.

The course is held over four weeks, with one module each week, and is aimed at helping our member editors make their journals more visible, impactful, and full of engaging material. The four modules focus on key journal, and personal, developments and skills,
aimed at helping editors:

  • improve the quality of editorial processes
  • manage ethical issues effectively
  • enhance the efficiency of peer review and production processes
  • support more successful promotional activities
  • comply with international standards, and
  • increase the chances of successful indexing applications.

The training will be led by Pippa Smart, Past-President of EASE, founder of
PSP Consulting, and Editor-in-Chief of Learned Publishing.

This course is particularly suitable for those in the early stages of their careers
as an editor but will benefit members of all experiences, involved in managing
or planning journal.
