Videos and Slides from the 13th GW Ethics in Publishing Conference

Videos and slides of the 13th GW Ethics in Publishing Conference presentations are now available! #EthicsinPublishing 2023 featured twenty presentations from twenty-five publishing professionals and students, from Canada, Chile, India, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States. Topics addressed at this year’s conference included AI-assisted accessibility for marginalized authors, an AI taxonomy and ethics for publishing workflows, open peer review and open access, multilingualism and translation, diversity and inclusion, workplace equity, accessibility, book bans, representation, and many other ethical issues in publishing. Seven students from GW’s Graduate Program in Publishing presented summaries of their Ethics in Publishing Capstone Projects, and publishing master’s students from Portland State University and Simon Fraser University delivered presentations on their research.

SSP members are invited to submit an article to the GW Journal of Ethics in Publishing, the student-managed journal of the GW Publishing program. Lois Jones, Peer Review Director at the American Psychological Association, serving as the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, with managing editor Tia Gracey, four student committees, and our editorial board, worked hard to publish Volume 2 earlier this month. See the Call for Papers, and contact EIC Lois Jones about getting involved in the journal.
