As publishers grow into data corporations, their surveillance of what we do and how we compare with one another increases their ability to influence standards of excellence. This profitable arrangement pits scholar communities against one another on a global scale to the benefit of the wealthy West perpetuating our dominance in scholarship. This talk frames academic-led publishing as a strategy for diversity and inclusion in scholarly publishing.
