Compuscript Publishing believes that diversity is a cornerstone of a vibrant culture. We are proud to publish high quality, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary content from authors and editors of all backgrounds. We have clear commitments to showcasing a diverse range of content, as well as representations of people and populations, and are committed to platform inclusivity and accessibility. The mission of Compuscript Publishing is to enable people from all backgrounds to contribute to scholarship and to ensure our publishing processes are unencumbered by bias and prejudice. Our journals programme will honour the following core areas through actions:

Amplifying diverse voices

We believe that anyone should be able to publish, regardless of status, geographical location or institutional affiliation.

Increase representation

We aim to increase ethnic, gender, and geographical diversity on our editorial boards, in peer review, and in our author base.

Increase visibility and impact of research

We are committed to increasing the visibility and impact of diverse and inclusive research to influence policy, practice, and public awareness.

Educate ourselves, our editors, and our societies

We aim to learn from each other and from our editors, authors, board members, and society partners. As we do so, we will actively seek to learn from people and groups that represent diverse backgrounds.

Ensure research is widely accessible

We aim to continually enhance and expand content delivery to reach to the broadest audience. We are committed to disseminating research and teaching materials widely and support informational mining. We strive to embrace accessibility improvements to ensure as many as possible can access our journal content.

Encouraging diverse and equitable language and referencing

We aim to ensure that the content published in our journals is free from bias, is representative of our diverse readership, and that the language is inclusive and sensitive to our communities.

Anti-racism and anti-discrimination

We publish journal content that promotes anti-racist and anti-discrimination scholarship and practice and educates readers on the latest research on prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination in all its forms.
