While reading this eBook you should definitely check out the links to resources from the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), especially the Code of Conduct Flowcharts. COPE offers clear advice on establishing and maintaining your journal's ethical guidelines.

On that note, I wanted to share an update from COPE. They just announced new guidelines on "Sharing of Information Among Editors-in-Chief Regarding Possible Misconduct."
