How EBSCO Information Services Supports Equity in Research

Research Information posted “Not Just Semantics: Supporting Equity in Research,” an article from EBSCO Community by Tamir Borensztajn, VP for SaaS and open strategy at EBSCO Information Services. Borensztajn writes the following:

Not every user—be it a researcher, a student, a faculty member—anywhere in the world enjoys the same opportunity to take advantage of published research. While the reasons are complex and multifold, I will address how we, at EBSCO, look at inequity in the research process and our role, as a provider of research information platforms, to ensure fair access to diverse information for any user. …

[W]e firmly believe that the library is the expected destination for trustworthy content in all its different formats and manifestations. EBSCO therefore considers the many different users, the journeys they take, and the trustworthiness and diversity of content as we remove barriers to equitable access to information.

In essence, we focus on three key areas: the trustworthiness and diversity of content that we index on our platforms; the search technology and its ability to return meaningful results for any user; and the user experience, which must accommodate the many different use cases and user behaviors.
