eLife Makes It Easier for Researchers to Request Name Changes

eLife announced that it “is among 13 publisher organisations beginning a partnership with all 17 United States Department of Energy national laboratories to support name-change requests from researchers.” eLife’s name-change policy “enables any author, editor and reviewer to retroactively change their name in an eLife article for any reason, including, but not limited to, changes in gender identity and expression, marital status or religion.” The “new partnership with the national laboratories will allow researchers to ask their respective institutions to pursue name changes on their behalf directly with eLife and other publishers and journals.” Researchers can use the new policy to claim their works from various stages of their career, and it will be especially helpful to transgender researchers, eLife notes.

 “Our original workflow for name changes was designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, yet we recognise it can be time-consuming and emotionally draining for researchers to initiate independent requests with us and other publishers,” says Stuart King, research culture manager at eLife. “I’m pleased that, through this partnership, we are now taking a step towards streamlining that process, meaning researchers can spend more of their time on the research that they are trained to do and less time pursuing name-change requests.”
