The Master of Professional Studies in publishing program at the George Washington University will be holding its 10th GW Ethics in Publishing Conference, April 23, 2020, at the National Churchill Library and Center in GW’s Gelman Library in Washington, D.C.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility,” with panel presentations and “PechaKucha”-style short talks on topics such as equity, inclusion, accessibility, sustainability, peer review, metrics and other issues of ethics in publishing.

GW’s publishing program is hosting the event with three co-sponsors, the Association of University Presses (AUPresses), the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) and the Association of American Publishers.

“We invite publishers, librarians, students and researchers from all stages of their career to join us for the free event,” said John W. Warren, Director and Associate Professor, Master of Professional Studies in Publishing, and co-organizer of the event.

“The publishing master’s program at GW has always had ethics as a strong component, and ethical issues in publishing are more important than ever. This is the tenth Ethics in Publishing Conference that the GW publishing program has held; the previous conference was in 2016.”

“Sharing best-practices, tools, and action steps on issues of equity, inclusion, and accessibility are critical to publishers, whether in trade, scholarly, academic, or other publishing sectors,” said Puja Telikicherla, Licensing & Subsidiary Rights Manager, American Psychiatric Association Publishing, and adjunct professor in GW’s publishing program, who is co-organizing the event.

“We are excited to relaunch the GW Ethics in Publishing Conference, addressing these topics with a robust lineup of diverse speakers.”
