Endorsing the code

It's very easy for publishers to sign up to endorse the Code. Please send an e-mail to Alison Mitchell, Transfer Working Group co-Chair stating that your organisation endorses the Code. Endorsing publishers must use the Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service (ETAS) to send announcements of all journal transfers. 

Publishers endorsing the Code are listed on the Publisher Endorsement page.

If you have any questions please email the co-Chairs of the Working Group, Alison Mitchell,, and Elizabeth Winter,
