EASE Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Survey
ALLEA – GYA – STM joint Webinar – IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility) in scholarly peer-review
In this upcoming joint webinar, we will explore issues related to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility in the scholarly peer review system. The peer review system currently does not accurately represent the research community as a whole: women, researchers from the Global South and less-established institutions, early career researchers, and non-native English speakers are all among those under-represented. In addition, researchers not affiliated with established high-status institutions often experience a disadvantage when their work is submitted for peer review. Together, these biases directly affect individuals’ career progression and are likely to impact the quality of research outputs and the diversification of the research system in general.
