COPE – members’ list

COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) is dedicated to training and supporting editors, publishers and others involved in publications. The aim is to move forward the culture of publishing in a direction in which ethical practices become a normal part of the publishing culture. Guidelines, instructions, seminars and practices that journals and publishers require to attain the highest standards regarding publication ethics offer support.

If you want to make sure that a journal is not a predatory journal, then don’t just trust the details on their website. Check if the journal is a member of COPE, because this will give an indication of the seriousness of the journal.
