About the Webinar
As the number of published articles continues to increase each year, so do the number of fraudulent studies. In fact, the number of retractions in the biomedical literature increased from 467 in 2013 to 684 in 2015 (source: https://www.vox.com/2016/3/24/11299102/scientific-retractions-are-on-the-rise). Fortunately, there are tools available for editors (and reviewers) to help them handle ethically questionable manuscripts at the time or submission or post publication. This webinar provides an overview of two free resources available to editors (and reviewers) to help handle publishing ethics allegations - the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit (PERK).
This webinar is sponsored by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.
