The Women’s Caucus for Political Science Releases Statement

The Women’s Caucus for Political Science has released a statement drawing attention to the high number of women and scholars of color who will be disadvantaged by DA-RT, and calling for a suspension of the transparency requirement until the Qualitative Transparency Deliberations have been concluded.

The statement recommends “that the president and president-elect note that DA-RT provisions need to be revised to address the concerns of qualitative scholars, scholars from non-Research 1 schools, and scholars working on politically sensitive topics, many of whom are women and scholars of color. We also recommend that the president and president-elect urge editors to delay their implementation of DA-RT as a requirement until such revisions are made.”
