Terrific session today! Thank you Leslie Townsell for leading us through a collective intelligence exercise on DEIJ and to Anwesha Gosh for presenting fabulous science in the critical region of Sundarbans in the Ganges Delta as well as clearly articulating the challenges of scientists in the Global South in the publication realm. We must continue to give voice and provide mechanisms to broaden our scientific lens by creating equitable opportunities.
I read this piece in Nature today about the challenge open science principles have with regards to equity, particularly in terms of publishing science, which perpetuates this inequity: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-022-00724-0?WT.ec_id=NATURE-20220317&utm_source=nature_etoc&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20220317&sap-outbound-id=2BEBCD72D665FDEA355892635829C0523C095E20
Can we as an ASLO community think of mechanisms to remove this barrier for our colleagues from the Global South?
