Kullas, PhD (Director, Ethics and IDEAA (Inclusive Diversity with Equity, Access & Accountability), American Society for Microbiology) in addressing a number of pressing questions about ethics in publishing, Ask the Experts organizer, David Meyers took a few minutes to answer a few questions about what to expect.

Why is this topic important and timely?

Journals in all disciplines continue to face ethical issues. Allegations of author misconduct can be time-consuming and frustrating to deal with.

Is there a particular aspect of this topic that is noteworthy?

Ethical issues are often reported on by the press and can have a severe impact on a journal’s reputation if not handled properly.

What can attendees expect?

Commercial and society publishers in all disciplines exploring issues like:

  • Are ethical issues increasing? Are more complaints being reported?
  • What should a publisher do after exhausting COPE guidelines and not having a resolution?
  • Checks and balances with regard to editorial decisions: is the editor’s word final?
  • How to deal with a complaint when the complainant is more or less anonymous, and their motive is unclear?
  • What happens when authors in the group disagree about retractions?
