There are two events of special interest to nursing journal editors!
COPE is delighted to announce its 5th North American Seminar, which will be held in collaboration with ISMTE (International Society of Managing and Technical Editors), on Wednesday 13 August 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. The theme of the COPE seminar will be centred around ‘new technologies and behaviours for identifying publication ethics issues’. Editors, publishers, authors and all those interested in publication ethics are welcome to attend. The seminar will include invited talks in addition to breakout sessions in the afternoon with discussion of related cases.
Last year we had 27 delegates from all over the world and there was a great buzz to the two days with wide-ranging discussions. Feedback showed that not only did the delegates think it was inspiring, but the course also gave them ideas and practical information for their own journals. Networking and participation were key and everyone agreed that the opportunity to discuss large and small issues and to learn from each other was one of the key strengths of the two days. (A short walk around Oxford and one of the colleges was also very appreciated!)
