Editorial: Improving Diversity in our Journal



Meijer A & Webster W (2023) Editorial: Improving Diversity in our Journal. Information Polity, 28 (4), pp. 451-452. https://doi.org/10.3233/ip-239013

First paragraph: Research shows that gender and geographical inequalities remain persistent issues in academia. This manifests itself in a number of ways, notably in an underrepresentation of women and academics from ‘emerging countries’ in leadership positions in many academic disciples, including eGovernment studies. Within the realm of journal publishing these inequalities can be evidenced by levels of diversity amongst the published authors, journal reviewers and on editorial boards. Whilst these are indicators of broader societal inequalities more diversity in authors, reviewers and editorial boards can show a direction of travel and a desire by publishers and academic communities to be more inclusive. As Editors-in-Chief of Information Polity we are keen to enhance diversity within the journal and would like to invite you to work with us to make the journal more inclusive.
