To publish is to disseminate research publicly—however, the scope of our audience changing, as funders and other stakeholders demand the widest possible communication of scientific research across the globe. In this whitepaper, we will consider how publishers and editors can enable impartial, inclusive publication and outreach, within and beyond the academy. We will especially look at how publishers and editors are reaching beyond the “ivory towers” of western scholarly discourse to facilitate broader impact of science within society.
