The LPC is proud to be a founding member of the new Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications, or C4DISC. We join nine other professional associations in the scholarly publishing sphere in releasing a Joint Statement of Principles to demonstrate the commitment of participating organizations to promoting involvement, innovation, and expanded access to leadership opportunities that maximize engagement across identity groups and professional levels.
The other founding members of C4DISC are the Association of University Presses, Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers, Canadian Association of Learned Journals, Council of Science Editors, International Society of Managing and Technical Editors, NASIG, Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association, UKSG, and the Society for Scholarly Publishing.
AUPresses, NASIG, OASPA, and SSP are also LPC strategic affiliates, and we are excited to have this opportunity to work together in a new way to advance our shared values. Stay tuned for more information on LPC’s involvement in C4DISC!
