The discussion of diversity and inclusion is not a new topic in the area of scholarly publishing and scholarly communications. Given the emergence of organizations such as the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC), among others, this presentation will share some considerations on diversity and inclusion with regards to:

  • The publishing environment (What are the equity/diversity/inclusion [EDI] initiatives at the institution where you publish?)
  • The editors/staff (Who is making decisions, and do they take into consideration EDI?)
  • The authors (Is there diversity in who is published? In who is asked to peer review?)
  • The journal content (Do you practice inclusive editing? Does your journal include a land acknowledgment? Do your journal’s articles situate their content with regards to the parameters of inclusion/exclusion?)
