Ethics in Action

This year’s Ethics in Publishing Conference theme is Ethics in Action. We will be hearing from professionals in trade, academic, scholarly, and library publishing on what actions are being taken to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion; improve accessibility; and to increase access, for authors, early career professionals, in mentorship programs, and on editorial boards.

Topic ideas include:

  • Actions that publishers, libraries, and other stakeholders in the publishing ecosystem are taking to advance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI).
  • Actions to make publishing workflows and outputs more accessible to all.
  • Efforts to make publishing workplace practices inclusive and equitable, including internships, early-career positions, and editorial boards.
  • Actions that have helped to ensure diverse voices are more represented in the publishing ecosystem.
