The Inclusive Language and Image Guidelines for Scholarly Communications Working Group is calling for volunteers to join their team.
The Inclusive Language and Image Guidelines Working Group will assess current practices across the industry and will then develop guidelines to help all authors, editors, and reviewers recognize the use of language and images that are inclusive and culturally sensitive. The guidelines will serve as a global tool and educational resource that can be used by individuals, institutions, and publishers. By addressing the various forms of conscious/unconscious bias and discrimination currently found in published research, the intent of this working group will be to set an industry standard that promotes proactive inclusive writing habits going forward.
To volunteer, please complete the Working Group Application at C4DISC and indicate you are interested in Inclusive Language and Image Guidelines in the “Working Group(s) Requested” field. Applications are requested by May 10, 2021
