eLife's Global South Committee for Open Science

Guiding eLife in promoting inclusive, equitable and diverse scientific communications by supporting researchers in the Global South, and amplifying their work on a global scale.

Our Global South Committee for Open Science brings together researchers in the Global South to advise and collaborate with us in the pursuit of more inclusive, equitable and diverse scientific communication and innovation. The group is a pillar of guidance in improving the opportunities of Global South researchers as well as eLife’s outreach and support in these regions.
