Committee on Publication Ethics
The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) has outlined guidance for handling complaints, namely:
15.1. Editors should respond promptly to complaints and should ensure there is a way for dissatisfied complainants to take complaints further. This mechanism should be made clear in the journal and should include information on how to refer unresolved matters to COPE.
15.2. Editors should follow the procedure set out in the COPE flowchart on complaints.
