Workplace Equity Project Surveying Scholarly Publishing
WE | March 5, 2018
Publishing in the last few years has acquired a healthy appetite for collecting data that reveal the buying and reading habits of us, its customers. Yet publishers rarely collect data on themselves – and even more sparingly do they ever share it.
The independent, non-profit Workplace Equity Project (WE) explores workplace experiences, practices, and opportunities in scholarly publishing. Its first initiative is the WE Survey, underway through March 14, 2018. The 12-minute online questionnaire will discover how – and how well – publishers and related organizations are addressing equity and diversity issues, according to WE co-founder Susan Spilka.
