Evaluation of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) Aid to Scholarly Journals (ASJ) funding opportunity | November 25, 2020 12:30-1:30 ET

An evaluation of the ASJ funding opportunity is currently being conducted as part of SSHRC’s standard evaluation of ongoing programming. Since the previous evaluation of the ASJ in 1985, major changes have taken place both within the program and in scholarly communication more generally. The findings from the evaluation will help to inform decisions regarding the future of the ASJ in this changing environment. Please join us in this webinar to learn more about the progress and preliminary findings from the evaluation.   

Dina Guth works as a Senior Program Officer at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).  As part of the Research Grants Portfolio, she engages in the delivery of SSHRC’s flagship Insight Grants and Insight Development Grants and is the Senior Program Officer responsible for the Aid to Scholarly Journals and Awards to Scholarly Publications programs. She holds a PhD in Classical Studies from the University of Michigan and spent several productive years as an instructor and researcher at the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg prior to joining SSHRC.

Exploring Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications October 28, 2020 12:30-1:30 ET

The discussion of diversity and inclusion is not a new topic in the area of scholarly publishing and scholarly communications. Given the emergence of organizations such as the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC), among others, this presentation will share some considerations on diversity and inclusion with regards to:

    The publishing environment (What are the equity/diversity/inclusion [EDI] initiatives at the institution where you publish?)
    The editors/staff (Who is making decisions, and do they take into consideration EDI?)
    The authors (Is there diversity in who is published? In who is asked to peer review?)
    The journal content (Do you practice inclusive editing? Does your journal include a land acknowledgment? Do your journal’s articles situate their content with regards to the parameters of inclusion/exclusion?)
