Daniel Kulp, PhD is the founder of Publication Integrity & Ethics Consulting, LLC. Over a successful 27-year career in scholarly publishing, he has guided some of the most prestigious and well-respected journals in physics and chemistry through his associations with the American Physical Society and the American Chemical Society. He started in 1996 as a professional, full-time editor for Physical Review B, published by the American Physical Society, and quickly advanced to the position of Editorial Director for the entire Physical Review portfolio. In 2020, he joined the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) as Editorial Director and his most recent role with ACS was as Senior Director, Research Integrity & Global Developments. 

As the current Chair of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), Dan is considered an authority on publication ethics. He has been invited to speak at global events, including venues in India, China, and South Africa. He has also worked closely with other publishers, editors, and US-based research integrity officers to expand and enhance the cooperation between Institutions and journals to ensure the integrity of the published literature.  This collaboration led to a Special Communication in JAMA Network Open (Garfinkel, et al., JAMA Netw Open. 2023;6(6):e2320796. doi:10.1001/jamanetworkopen.2023.20796). Most recently, he participated on a panel convened by the Strategic Council for Research Excellence, Integrity, and Trust within the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine to discuss retractions.
