Gender diversity of RSC editorial board members
As a professional body and not-for-profit publisher, we want chemistry to be open to everyone – no matter their gender.
In 2019, we published a report about gender bias in the chemical sciences, which included in-depth gender analysis of the publication process in the chemical science community. As part of that report, we identified key areas for action, including increasing the transparency around diversity and inclusion, and the importance of reflecting the current gender balance in our research community.
We have also signed up to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), aiming to accelerate progress and achieve our goals by 2030. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity contributes to the goal of gender equalities (SDG 5).
We're committed to shaping things for the better, eliminating bias and driving change within the academic publishing industry. That’s why we are sharing the most recent statistics about the gender diversity of our editorial board members.
*Percentages are based on data collected from individual journals and books before 28 September 2021. Data is held on the geographical location and employment of editorial board members through their affiliations.
I’m proud to contribute to Royal Society of Chemistry journals due to their scientific excellence, quality and gender inclusion
