Transgender astronomers speak out about outdated name change policies

0 3

An open letter to a scientific journal has sparked a conversation around diversity, inclusion and safety in the astronomy community.

When scientists publish their work in a journal, they do so under their name. However, people change their names later for a number of reasons, and there remain policies in place at some journals that prohibit authors from changing or correcting the names they have listed on previous publications. This might result in confusion or career difficulties for some, but for transgender scientists, it could cause very serious safety issues.
