    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.

    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/
