The draft ethics statement
Do we want to write a journal-specific Ethics statement, or should we have an overall one that covers all WikiJournals? If we do one that it for all WikiJournals, we can get input from the other editorial boards.
My instinct is to have one centralised ethics statement for all the journals, since most issues like plagiarism, conflicts of interest, code of conduct are the same for all of the WikiJournals. If there are specific issues that affect only one of the journals, the individual journals page could have an amendments/addenda/additions section where further ethics issues are defined. Applying to COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) is done for each journal individually until the publisher has more than five journals, at which point the publisher can apply as a single entity. Having a unified ethics statement may make things easier if/when there are more WikiJournals and the the WikiJournal publishing group wishes to apply to COPE.
If people agree, I'll also summarise this on the general WikiJournal discussion page.
