C4DISC Calls for Volunteers

Working Towards Inclusive and Culturally Sensitive Use of Language

C4DISC Call for Volunteers: The Inclusive Language and Image Guidelines Working Group will assess current practices across the industry and will then develop guidelines to help all authors, editors, and reviewers recognize the use of language and images that are inclusive and culturally sensitive. The guidelines will serve as a global tool and educational resource that can be used by individuals, institutions, and publishers. By addressing the various forms of conscious/unconscious bias and discrimination currently found in published research, the intent of this working group will be to set an industry standard that promotes proactive inclusive writing habits going forward.
