Diversity, Equity & Inclusion statement

The International Review of Public Policy acknowledges the challenges faced by underrepresented and minority communities in the academic publication processes. We are committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our journal. As such, we actively encourage submissions from scholars across a wide spectrum of institutional affiliations, nationalities, and career stages. We particularly welcome and value contributions from individuals underrepresented within academia, based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, disability, or other protected characteristics. Our mission is to create a platform that embraces and amplifies diverse voices from all corners of the globe, working together to shape impactful public policy research.

Our Editorial Board and Scientific Committee reflect the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strive to have a Board and a Committee that embody a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Our members come from diverse institutional affiliations, continents and stages of their careers.  

IRPP Commitment to Just and Equitable Citation

The International Review of Public Policy (IRPP) acknowledges the potential replication and reinforcement of inequities in reference citations. We recognize that certain characteristics, such as gender, race, early career scholars, and scholars from underrepresented regions like the Global South, may be easier to discern in references. To actively address these disparities, we encourage authors whose manuscripts are accepted for publication in IRPP to critically evaluate their reference lists and actively include citations of equally rigorous and relevant scholarship by underrepresented minority authors.
