Who is running the PLACE?

The PLACE has been developed together by a coalition of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the scholarly metadata infrastructure provider Crossref, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), and the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA). They share values and goals to work more effectively together to better support the needs of our communities.
