Celebrating 35 Years of Diversity and Inclusion with IGI Global

By Melissa Wagner on Jul 7, 2023
For over 35 years, IGI Global has strived to provide exemplary support to the academic community with a mission that continues to seek to embrace underrepresented researchers and ensure that they too are provided with an outlet in which to share their perspectives and research findings. As such, it has not only provided numerous publishing opportunities to researchers all over the world but has also never turned away any author based on their race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political affiliations, religions, or other identifying factors. Through the use of the double-blind peer review, IGI Global maintains the idea that the evaluation of any chapter or article must remain centered on the research and the research alone. Whether the author is a man or woman, African American or Caucasian, Catholic or Jewish, homosexual or heterosexual, early career researcher or a Nobel prize winner, we believe that all content must be considered and allow the merit of the research to dictate its publishing eligibility.
Benefits of Publishing With IGI Global:
  • Traditional and Open Access Publishing Models
  • Royalties
  • Free Use of the eEditorial Discovery® Submission System
  • Flexible Timelines (Less Than 1 Year, if desired)
  • Rigorous Double-Blind Peer Review Process

IGI Global remains honored to work with and establish meaningful relationships with researchers of all demographics and collaborates with authors to ensure that they are able to secure the resources they need to improve their scholarly work.
