eLife Forms the Global South Committee for Open Science

eLife announced the following:

Our new model has the potential to make publishing a more inclusive enterprise, offering the benefits of scholarly review while giving authors more agency in the publishing process. To fulfil that potential, we need coordinated efforts and to hear from the communities most impacted by the inequity in the status quo.

We’ve therefore set up the eLife Global South Committee for Open Science to learn directly from our peers in the Global South, so that we can strive to overcome these barriers in the pursuit of inclusive, equitable and more diverse scientific communications. …

The Global South Committee for Open Science brings together researchers from countries and territories that share characteristics with regard to socioeconomics, politics, limited representation and policy influence on key issues and who are therefore often minoritised. This group provides a dedicated space to work with eLife towards greater involvement within science communication and innovation.

For more information and bios of the 10 founding committee members, read the news item.
