[Comment] The gendered system of academic publishing

Gender is a sociocultural and economic concept and an institutionalised system of social practices that translates into different experiences and uneven advantages for men and women at the individual, organisational, and societal levels.1 This system manifests as the persistent gender pay gap, endemic sexual harassment,2 and the proverbial glass ceiling limiting women’s representation and advancement in social and economic life. Academia, including academic publishing, is not immune to this gendered system of social practices.
