Ethical Editing for Editors

Becoming an editor of Archives of Surgical Research is an exciting but daunting task, especially if you are working alone without day-to-day contact with editorial colleagues. This short guide aims to summarise key issues and to provide links to relevant pages of the COPE website as well as those of other organizations. We encourage the editorial team to consult COPE and ICMJE resources frequently for their training and handling of the manuscript and various editorial issues.
