Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) Announces Publication of “An Ethical Framework for Library Publishing, Version 1.0”
An Ethical Framework for Library Publishing, Version 1.0. [was] inspired by discussions at the 2017 Library Publishing Forum, the Framework was created by the members of the Ethical Framework for Library Publishing Task Force, with the assistance of many community members who served as peer reviewers and workshop participants, as well as the staff of the Educopia Institute.
The Framework introduces library publishers to important ethical considerations in a variety of areas and provides concrete recommendations for ethical scholarly publishing. As the version number in the title suggests, this is meant to be an evolving document – to be updated and expanded over time.
Version 1.0 (published July 2018) covers publishing practice; accessibility; diversity, equity, and inclusion; privacy and analytics; and academic and intellectual freedom
We would love to hear from the community about how this document is useful to you and how it could be improved – please email firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback and suggestions!
The Framework is released under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license, so it can be freely copied, distributed, and built upon.
