In this upcoming joint webinar, ALLEA (All European Academies), GYA (The Global Young Academy) and STM (International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers) will explore issues related to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) in the scholarly peer review system. The peer review system currently does not accurately represent the research community as a whole: women, researchers from the Global South and less-established institutions, early career researchers, and non-native English speakers are all among those under-represented. In addition, researchers not affiliated with established high-status institutions often experience a disadvantage when their work is submitted for peer review. Together, these biases directly affect individuals’ career progression and are likely to impact the quality of research outputs and diversification of the research system in general. A moderated discussion with four distinguished panellists will address these challenges and ideas for new, vigorous approaches to improve IDEA in peer review.

Do NFTs have a future in scholarly publishing? NFTs—non-fungible tokens—are records of “ownership” of assets that are stored on blockchains. NFTs can be bought, sold, resold, and traded on online platforms, and can have value, at least potentially, including as speculative collectors’ items or through the addition of ‘smart contracts’ that govern resale rights. SSP will discuss what NFTs are, explore some potential use cases for NFTs in scholarly publishing, and consider possible impacts for scholarly publishers, researchers, scientific information infrastructures such as university libraries, computer centers or university publishers, and other creators and contributors. SSP will be joined in an interactive conversation with Todd Carpenter, Executive Director of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO); Markus Putnings, University Library of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany; Bill Rosenblatt, President at GiantSteps Media Technology Strategies; and John W. Warren, Director and Associate Professor, George Washington University.
