Across many fields from the sciences and social sciences there exists a gap in scholars from traditionally under-represented groups in many types of publications. By analyzing submission patterns and the review process through the lens of gender, race or nationality, publishers can provide valuable information to editors, societies and other stakeholders to begin to understand and address possible biases. The panelists and scholars have done significant analysis and research in this area and will discuss the practicalities of collecting and analyzing these data, conclusions reached, and what to do about it. Specific topics include how to collect data on your publications, the impact of author self-selection by gender and among scholars of color, gender in the research landscape, reviewer bias and reviewer diversity.
