AIP Publishing believes the pursuit of knowledge is the pursuit of a better world: one where science can be generated by all, accessible to all, and beneficial to all. We are driven by the evidence — and the belief — that the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging lead to better solutions. As such, we are committed to welcoming conversations that help us understand and respond to the various perspectives of our colleagues and community.
In line with the diversity initiatives of the American Institute of Physics — and in recognition of our unique and influential position as a publisher for a large federation of scholarly societies — we have dedicated ourselves to a publishing landscape that eliminates barriers to participation and promotes inclusion and representation at every step of the process. AIP Publishing has adopted the principles of the Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) and is an active participant in the Joint Commitment for Action on Inclusion and Diversity in Publishing, joining like-minded trade and professional organizations working to address the issues of diversity and inclusion within our industry.
Science belongs to everyone. It should be practiced, published, and available to anyone who seeks it, regardless of that person’s race, sex, color, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, nationality, religion, socioeconomic standing, or physical abilities. This is the heart of AIP Publishing’s mission, and it is incumbent upon us to promote and reinforce these ideals in all our decisions and actions.
