How publishers can make research more inclusive

December 12, 2023 | 5 pm | ZOOM Meeting-ID: 775 491 0236

Seventy-five years ago, universal declaration of human rights proclaimed that having access to the benefits of science is a fundamental human right (article 27). To achieve this important goal, science and the research community must become more diverse and more inclusive. Why? Because science can only be done for all if it is also done by all. Scientific publishers and editors have an important role in achieving this goal, and I will illustrate these points using examples of what we publish and how we work across the Nature Portfolio, in partnership with the scientific community.
