We ask that all surgery journal editors make a pledge “To strive for diversity in the peer review process and among the editorial boards and editorial leaders.”

To date, 129 surgery journals have signed on to this pledge.

If you are a surgery journal editor and have not yet signed up for the pledge, you may so do here.


For more information on gender and publishing, see the report by Elsevier on “The Researcher Journey Through a Gender Lens.” The report can be downloaded here.
