eLife Shares Recent Accomplishments of Its Early-Career Advisory Group

eLife’s Early-Career Advisory Group (ECAG), founded in 2014, is composed of diverse researchers who help eLife reform research communication and culture with their unique, early-career perspective. They advise eLife on all aspects of policy related to their peer group and generate new ideas for how to support early-career researchers. They published an update on their activities, stating the following:

Six new members joined the group in May and they quickly injected fresh ideas and energy into the group. …

Following our 2020 editorial on increasing equity, diversity and inclusion in scientific publishing, we worked with the eLife team of staff and editors to support greater diversity on its editorial board. Together with a group of eLife editors[, ECAG members] developed the recent open recruitment project inviting new Reviewing Editors from Latin America.

Increasing the involvement of early-career researchers in the peer-review process is an ongoing concern for the ECAG and, in 2021, we worked with the journal’s leadership team to develop and pilot several ideas to address this.
