The PIE Council is the Publication Integrity and Ethics’ governing body. Members of the Council are the trustees of the ethical environment and ethical conduct in the editorial and publishing sector.

The main responsibilities of the PIE Council are to manage the affairs of PIE, to keep track of all the national and global issues that are directly or indirectly affecting the organisation and the publishing sector. It provides the PIE direction by reviewing the strategic plans and allocating resources necessary in order for the organisation to function properly.

In addition, the Council oversees the entire PIE activity, ensures that both the organisation and its members meet their statutory obligations and promotes ethical editorial conduct among all its members and associates.
While complaints related to breaches in the code of ethical editorial conduct must first be addressed directly to the journal, the editorial staff or the author, such issues may be raised, discussed and solved with the help of the Council Sub-Committee. It offers mediation, access to information and a simple and effective procedure of analysing and closing disputes.
