April 4, 2022

April 4, 2022 | 5:00pm–6:30pm EDT

The final workshop is a series of three on inclusion, diversity and equity in the editing and publishing of peer-reviewed journals.

What does it take to make journal publishing function more inclusively and transparently? In this workshop, participants will discuss their perspectives on future paths for greater equity and inclusion in authorship, the division of labor, peer review, the constitution of editorial boards, and consider the ways in which journals can foster the diversity of all participants. Presenters will address the ways in which institutional contexts (universities, university presses, scholarly societies) shape journal operations, and consider how the relationships between journals and institutions can lead to support for enhanced inclusion and equity.
