New Resource to Combat Racial Bias for Scholarly Publishing Professionals

A new diversity, equity, and inclusion resource for scholarly publishing professionals is now available. Published by Toolkits for Equity in Scholarly Publishing project volunteers, the Antiracism Toolkit for Allies is the first in a series of three, designed to provide antiracism resources for allies; for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour; and for organizations within the scholarly publishing community.

The kit was modeled after the American Alliance of Museums’ guides for transgender inclusion, and provides a common framework specific to the scholarly publishing community for:
• analysis,
• a shared vocabulary and history,
• best practices to address racial disparities.

The toolkit is hosted by the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) and can be downloaded from its website. It’s published under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license. It is hoped it will be used by individuals and organizations in the community for their own personal development and in organization-wide training programs. Users are encouraged to redistribute and customize the toolkits for their own use.
