Invitation to an online workshop on publication ethics (2)

23 March, 2020

Dear All,

I'm pleased to say that many people have emailed me about joining our workshop.

Indeed, more than 30 people have emailed me, but do not fear. We will organise further workshops.

We will communicate the details for joining the workshop to the first 30 who contacted me and then make arrangements for others. We will run a workshop for everybody interested.

Best wishes
