It's Now Easier for IEEE
Authors to Change Their
Preferred Name
IN JUNE, IEEE's Board of Directors
took an important step in
its collective journey toward an
inclusive and equitable culture that
welcomes, engages, and rewards all
who contribute to the field, without
regard to race, religion, gender,
disability, age, national origin, sexual
orientation, gender identity, or gender
To fully align IEEE's actions with
our commitment to diversity and
inclusion, IEEE's Publication Services
and Products Board (PSPB) and the
IEEE Board of Directors voted to
permit authors who change their
preferred name-due to marriage or
divorce, religious conversion, gender
alignment, or any other reason-to
modify the metadata associated with
their IEEE publications upon successful
validation of the identity of the
requesting author.
" IEEE continues its strong
commitment to diversity, equity, and
inclusion in our work and across
our professions. Given our mission,
focused on the advancement of technology
for the benefit of humanity,
IEEE collaborates globally with all our
stakeholders and seeks to maintain an
open and inclusive platform for our
authors, " says Susan K. (Kathy) Land,
2021 IEEE president and CEO.
" I'm pleased with the IEEE Board
of Directors's unanimous approval of a
policy that recognizes the importance
that authors place on managing their
own name and identity. "
Larry Hall, vice president, IEEE
Publication Services and Products,
replied, " I'm quite pleased that the
Board was able to make substantial
progress in addressing the needs of
our author community in concert with
progressive industry practice. We will
continue to work on issues related to
removing impediments and expanding
access for all researchers who have
something to contribute to the scholarly
conversation. "
