The Boys Club: Academic Publishing and Barriers of Access

  • Nicole Payer SFU
Keywords: women in publishing, feminism

Abstract

Gendered, unequal access in academic publishing has become a pervasive system that operates on exclusionary principles. These principles privilege maleness - and whiteness - above all else. Men continue to be the gatekeepers of what is deemed "worthy" of academic publishing, resulting in the systemic silencing of women in academia.
