ASTRO’s journals work to foster diversity, equity and inclusion at all stages of the publication process. The journals strive for editorial boards that are representative of ASTRO’s membership, and encourage diversity in study methodologies and thorough demographic reporting in published articles. Robust training opportunities are available for emerging scholars.
