Taylor & Francis Joins Two Organizations Committed to DEI in Publishing

Taylor & Francis entered two partnerships to help work toward diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the publishing field: the Joint commitment for action on inclusion and diversity in publishing (coordinated by the Royal Society of Chemistry) and the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC).

The joint commitment initiative has more than 30 publishing organizations coming together “to understand our research community, reflect its diversity, share success to achieve impact, and set minimum standards on which to build.” Goals include “the enablement of diversity data to be self-reported by members of our community which can be shared and analyzed anonymously to understand where action is needed; [and] the creation of subject-specific diversity baselines, with minimum targets to achieve appropriate and inclusive representation of authors, reviewers, and editorial decision-makers.”

C4DISC has 10 supporting bodies aiming “to build equity, inclusion, diversity, and accessibility in scholarly communications and a commitment to respect, listen, and act.” Taylor & Francis is now a sponsor of the coalition and will follow its recommendations for “working practices, training, and guidance for colleagues.”
