Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) is committed to educating and supporting editors, publishers and those involved in publication ethics with the aim of moving the culture of publishing towards one where ethical practices become a normal part of the publishing culture. J&J Editorial has always promoted publishing best practices, and publication ethics are a key component of these best practices. As we support our clients with their projects, we seek to add a deep and nuanced understanding to any ethical concerns that arise. COPE and the resources they provide are invaluable to this mission.

The Council of Science Editors (CSE) is an international membership organization for editorial professionals in scientific publishing. J&J staff enjoy the educational and networking resources that CSE offers as we develop a deeper and broader understanding of the scholarly publishing ecosystem and the needs of our scientific editors. J&J staff also share their expertise with the CSE community through creation of educational programming and committee participation. CSE’s aim is to be an authoritative resource on current and emerging issues in the communication of scientific information, and we find our membership in this organization to be vital to the high-quality services we provide our clients.

The Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) was founded by 10 trade and professional associations that represent organizations and individuals working in scholarly communications. The Coalition was formed to discuss and address issues of diversity and inclusion within our industry. J&J Editorial prioritizes issues of diversity and inclusion, and have created our own internal Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Council. One of our Council’s first actions was to officially adopt the C4DISC Joint Statement of Principles on behalf of J&J.

A number of surveys in recent years have shed light on the lack of diversity in scholarly communications. From issues of gender equality to the noticeable lack of ethnic diversity in our workforce, there is an increasing awareness that, as an industry, we are not a model of inclusivity. Publishing is truly a global enterprise yet that diversity is not reflected in our collective demographics.

J&J Editorial has adopted the C4DISC Joint Statement of Principles.


The International Society of Managing and Technical Editors (ISMTE) has played an important role in the growth and development of J&J Editorial. ISMTE serves a unique niche within the academic, scientific, medical, technical, and professional publishing industry by focusing on the needs of editorial office staff. ISMTE provides networking and training infrastructure, establishes best practices, and studies and reports on editorial office practices. In addition to benefiting from ISMTE resources, J&J is regularly involved in developing material and programming for our society colleagues.

The Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) is a nonprofit organization formed to promote and advance communication among all sectors of the scholarly publication community through networking, information dissemination, and facilitation of new developments in the field. J&J values its membership in SSP for both the insightful content produced by SSP membership, as well as the strong community SSP has developed. SSP brings together a diverse set of people and perspectives which we find valuable as we navigate an ever-changing industry landscape. SSP members represent all aspects of scholarly publishing — including publishers, printers, e-products developers, technical service providers, librarians, and editors. J&J staff also volunteer on SSP committees to develop the organization and ourselves through the promotion of SSP initiatives. As J&J grows in both size and scope, we find our membership in SSP invaluable in guiding us forward.

J&J Society Leaders

ACES gives me an opportunity to both learn more about inclusive language to better inform my copyediting and also offer my expertise to other members.

My work with the SSP MarCom Committee offers me a place to hone my communications skills and connect with others in my industry who share my interests in the marketing side of scholarly communications.

Working on the CSE short courses and transitioning them to a virtual format has given me an opportunity to work with more of my esteemed CSE colleagues and also offer more content to a larger group of our members.

CSE’s webinars, short courses, and annual meetings provide premium educational resources for scholarly publishing professionals. It is personally enriching to help support the organization’s development of content that helps our colleagues thrive in their roles as science editors.
