Read our Research Publishing Ethics Guidelines here

As a leading publisher of scholarly journals and books, Cambridge University Press is committed to meeting high standards of ethical behaviour at all stages of the publication process. 

These guidelines outline the publishing ethics responsibilities of Cambridge University Press, authors, peer reviewers and editors.

COPE membership

We are a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), an organisation that provides advice and resources on all aspects of publication ethics and research and publication misconduct. We also closely follow industry associations such as the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICJME) and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), which provide best practice recommendations for the conduct and reporting of medical research.

How to raise a concern

Anyone who believes that research published by Cambridge University Press has not been carried out in line with these principles should raise their concerns with the relevant editor, or email
