Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consideration Requirement for CEE Submissions Starting 1/1/2021
In order to better surface scholarship on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), Chemical Engineering Education (starting 1/1/2021) will require all submissions to the journal to consider the work through a DEI lens. The ways that a submission addresses DEI issues should appropriately align with the other scholarly aspects of the work. This can be accomplished in one (or more) of three ways: (1) embedded within the body of the submission, (2) provided in a separate sub-section of the work or (3) discussed within a letter of submission to the Editor. The third option is provided during a transition period (up to one year) as authors become more familiar with requirements and expectations.
As the year progresses, the journal plans to make some “tutorial-type” articles available describing research-based approaches to incorporate DEI into your chemical engineering education projects. These resources will allow authors to become more educated on DEI areas to consider prior to conducting their chemical engineering education work.
Updates have been made to the Submission Preparation Checklist to reflect this change.
