New primary research published by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and Routledge examines the publication ethics challenges in arts, humanities, and social sciences (AHSS). While ethics cases may appear to be less prevalent in this field, when they do arise, they can be some of the most serious. From the tension between language quality and inclusion, to issues around data fabrication, a range of current and emerging challenges are confronting researchers in AHSS.

As both mentors to researchers and as researchers in their own right, librarians have a role to play in addressing these challenges.

The session will cover:
- The top publication ethics issues in the fields of arts, humanities, and social sciences as reported by journal editors;
- How librarians can play a role in addressing these issues in their role as a mentor on scholarly communications for researchers;
- The implications for librarians publishing their own research.

We understand that this is the first research of its kind specifically focused on the entire AHSS community, so shines a light on an important pillar of robust, peer-reviewed research.

The audience will come away with an understanding of the main research findings, as well as with knowledge of best practice resources in publication ethics, to embed in their day-to-day support.
