Scholarly Publishing and Baked-In Bias
While scholarly articles and other peer-reviewed products are typically considered the gold standard in academic research, as cultural products they are rooted in traditional power structures and not free of class, gender, racial/ethnic, and linguistic biases. For example, scholarly publishing tends to privilege those with the highest levels of education, which has gender and racial/ethnic/nationality implications; those who write and read in English; persons who can afford subscriptions or access institutional subscriptions; Eurocentric thought; and even particular research modalities or subjects. As consumers and creators of information—and especially as educators modeling disciplinary norms for students—acknowledging that the resources you access and use are not as neutral as they might seem is vital to understanding bias in information resources and disrupting the structures, policies, and practices that allow them to continue.
