Just a quick FYI:
George Washington University’s College of Professional Studies is holding their annual Ethics & Publishing Conference on July 8th. Attendance is free but you do need to register at the following website:
Here is the conference statement on their theme “Positive Ethics”:
‘The theme of the 6th annual conference on GWU Ethics and Publishing Conference is “Positive Ethics”. Too often discussions of ethics in publishing are solely about some ethical shortfall – plagiarism, using copyright as a weapon, censorship, predatory business practices – and so on. This year we want to focus on the positive side of ethical practices in the industry. What are publishers doing to promote social good? What are they doing over and above meeting responsibilities to their shareholders? And what more should they be doing?’
This should be a great conversation. Hope to see you there!
