Gender Identity Data at Scale: Considerations for Gleaning Actionable Insight

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Elsevier issued its most recent global gender report, “The Researcher Journey Through a Gender Lens,” in 2020, just as the pandemic hit. The report examines critical aspects of contribution, performance, and influence in research through a gender lens using an evidence-based approach employing a well-established inferred gender assignation methodology. Concurrently, we developed a plan for self-reported gender identity data in journal editorial management systems. The urgency of addressing gender inequity in research became more apparent in light of the differential impact the pandemic has had at both the individual and population levels. In 2021, Elsevier is continuing to work through issues of schema and options, platform technology, data privacy policies, and transparency to finalize our gender identity data collection plan. We are leveraging this experience to similarly develop a plan to collect race & ethnicity (R&E) data, although we are aware of additional complexities, and consider how to investigate gender and intersectionality in bibliometric analyses. Our effort is joined up with that of a multi-publisher coalition led by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Join us to discuss the decision-making process and implications for developing and utilizing gender and R&E identity data in editorial workflow systems and bibliometrics-based analyses meant to offer actionable insight that we can incorporate into our decision-making and interventions toward the goal of greater diversity, inclusion, and equality along multiple dimensions in both publishing and the conduct of research.
