If you need more in-depth or specific information on ethics, the Publishing Ethics guidelines has everything you need.
First published by Wiley in 2006, and updated in 2014, these uniquely multi-disciplined Guidelines provide resources and practical advice on ethical concerns that arise in academic publishing for authors, researchers, editors, and other audiences.
The second edition includes guidance on whistle-blowers, animal research, and clinical research, particularly around clinical trial registration. The new edition also provides guidance on best practice for journals in human rights and confidentiality, and addresses how approaches differ between cultures.
Further information related to publication ethics is available in the section on Licensing Info & FAQs. This includes information on publishing copyrighted material within a Wiley journal article, obtaining permission to reproduce material published in a Wiley article, guidelines on plagiarism and defamation, and additional Wiley policies on dual publication and retractions.
