About this video

Mr Chi reports on the actions taken by Elsevier as a research publisher, employer and leader in science data analytics to advance gender equality in science knowledge making and communication.  Science publishers are curators of research literature and as such are facilitators of access to science knowledge. They can influence how knowledge is applied. By working together with research funders, research performing institutions and policy makers they can create shared quality standards for advancing gender research and knowledge.
