Inclusion & Diversity in scientific publishing: why it’s a requirement, not a choice

About this video

Inequality in academic research is manifested in many ways. Women and racial and ethnic minorities are vastly underrepresented in academia. Sex and gender analysis is yet to be fully integrated into the design of research. All this keeps us from maximizing creativity in science and delivering excellence. The future of science depends on robust and diverse participation from all backgrounds.

In this webinar recording, Caeul Lim, Senior editor and I&D officer at Cell Press discusses how integral I&D is in data collection and communication of scientific findings and publishing and why "sticking to the science" does not work without inclusion and diversity. She presents examples of I&D initiatives across Cell Press and Elsevier. This recording is intended for colleagues in publishing, ECRs, and academics from all backgrounds. You will come away with an understanding of why it is essential to integrate inclusion, equality, and diversity in research.
