    Maybe it would be worth @dave30th mentioning his troubles with COPE to retraction watch? Their handling of his concerns seem more clearly bad than this example.

    Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) = So can we send a complain here as of why the LANCET have not retracted PACE paper?

    I'm not sure if people can complain directly to COPE, or if it's a forum for journal editors to take complaints. With Tuller, the journal were able to misrepresent the case in their submission to COPE.

    PS: Sorry, I meant to link to Tuller's most recent blog following the COPE saga in my above reply - currently it seems a bit oblique!: http://www.virology.ws/2018/04/02/trial-by-error-our-latest-tango-with-bmj-open/
