Join us on July 13 for “Publishing for Equity: A Panel Discussion on Anti-Oppressive Publishing“, a webinar hosted by the UCSF Library addressing efforts to build a more inclusive and anti-oppressive publishing ecosystem. In this panel event, an esteemed group of speakers will describe the current state of biomedical research publishing and share their own efforts to make academic journals reflect the experiences and voices of the diverse populations producing knowledge.
Scholarly publishing has been criticized for perpetuating bias in several ways. Many scholars from marginalized identities, including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), women, LGBTQ, and disabled face challenges in getting their work accepted, published, and recognized due to inherent biases in the system. Publishers also privilege research conducted by researchers from the Global North and written in English, which results in the exclusion of diverse perspectives and epistemologies.
Our panelists, Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Dr. Joel Babdor, Dr. Jae Sevelius, and Charlotte Roh will share their perspectives on how to create a more equitable publishing landscape. Dr. Kanade Shinkai will serve as the moderator, guiding the discussion and audience engagement. Participants will have the opportunity to pose their questions to the panelists.ucsf event: publishing_for_equity_a_panel_discussion_on_anti-oppressive_publishing
