Emily Mendenhall talks with Christopher Tancock about her work as co-Editor-in-Chief of the Social Science and Medicine-Mental Health journal, and the biggest challenges and obstacles women face in the editorial world. In Mendenhall’s words, “the higher one climbs in academia, the more apparent gender discrimination becomes”. “Many women scholars with children or other caregiving responsibilities are also calculating what they can balance and often, because women juggle so much, editorial responsibilities on top of teaching, research, and service can be a lot”.

This interview is part of a miniseries prepared by Elsevier to highlight issues experienced by women in research, explore solutions and continue the conversation about how to best enable gender balance in editorial teams without overloading any of the participants.
