The Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) is an international alliance of scholarly communications organizations that is collaborating to work towards a common goal of increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in scholarly communications while valuing differences, welcoming diverse perspectives, learning from different communities, making space for marginalized voices, and eliminating barriers. Established in 2017, C4DISC’s vision is a socially just community that welcomes, values, and celebrates all who seek to contribute to scholarly communications.
Organizations can participate in C4DISC as members or partners, and individuals can contribute to C4DISC initiatives by volunteering for working groups and making donations. C4DISC is governed by a steering committee made up of representatives from member organizations. Host organizations, the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) and the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP) provide accounting and technology support.
We welcome other scholarly communications organizations to join us. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Ana Maria Jimenez-Moreno, Community Administrator.
