Publishers, societies and institutions along with their editors, faculty, authors, librarians, scientists and researchers are all facing a scholarly ecosystem that is challenged by reproducibility issues, fake news, bogus editors and editorial boards, fake authors and peer reviewers, fictitious conferences and predatory journals-- to mention just a few. And these issues continue to grow. Reputable stakeholders have solutions, progress and ideas to address many ethical concerns for everyone involved in research and publication. Reproducibility requirements, data access, transparency, peer review, education, outreach, white lists and more help combat dodgy practices, manage the publication process to assure the scholarly record is of the highest quality for future generations. This panel will create a discussion on publication ethics and the efforts of key diverse stakeholders to improve and enhance scientific integrity —including a commercial publisher, a society and an academic library. This forum’s ideas, knowledge and perspectives on ethical publication and research practices hopes to further collaboration and transparency among all stakeholders with this key issue facing scholarly communication today.
