Self-reporting diversity data in Editorial Manager

About this video

Inclusion and diversity in research is critical for enabling all individuals to advance and excel; for rigor and quality in science; and for ensuring more equitable and impactful research outcomes for society.

At Elsevier, we have now begun inviting editors, reviewers, and authors to – optionally – self-report their gender identity, race and ethnicity (GRE) across journals in Editorial Manager (EM). The self-reported data will enable us to put in place actions, set goals, and measure progress to improve diversity across journal editorial processes and drive greater equity in publishing and research more broadly. 

In this recorded webinar, we provide editors with an overview of this initiative, including the approach we have taken in developing the schemas used, and details of the implementation in EM. We will also answer any questions you have. The webinar will be recorded for editors in other time zones.
