Useful resource for unscrambling acronyms. Very comprehensive.

Communication – holding conference calls

Callers have to pay for their call, but the setting up of a conference call facility is free – possibly enabling considerable savings

Ethics

COPE: Committee on Publication Ethics

COPE is a forum for publishers and editors of peer-reviewed journals to discuss issues related to the integrity of work submitted to or published in their journals. It supports and encourages editors to report, catalogue and instigate investigations into ethical problems in the publication process. COPE aims to define best practice in the ethics of scientific publishing and to assist authors, editors, editorial board members, readers, owners of journals and publishers. On the COPE Flowchart page, COPE has given ISMTE permission to share their greatest resource and certainly its most practical, the 17 flowcharts that provide algorithms for editors to follow when they suspect publication misconduct. We have provided a complete listing of the 17 flowcharts and download link to the PDF.
