Events over the past year related to the civil unrest, protests, and riots against systemic racism toward Black people in the United States, including the police killings of Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and Elijah McClain, the modern-day lynching of Ahmaud Arbery, and the international catalyst triggered by the public murder of George Floyd during his arrest by Minnesota police officers, has brought an urgency in addressing racism in various contexts. These tragic injustices, only brought to light because bystanders courageously captured videos, represent just the tip of the iceberg of deeply entrenched racism that penetrates all aspects of life, institutions, and judicial and healthcare systems around the world. Of relevance to the Journal of Pediatric Psychology (JPP) are urgent calls to upend racism in psychological science (Buchanan et al., 2020; Roberts et al., 2020), which can occur in conducting, reporting, reviewing, and disseminating science. As highlighted by several scholars (e.g., Buchanan et al., 2020), a dismantling of White supremacy is needed at the systems level because current practices are biased toward White scholars and White communities, and thus are not representative. If changes are not made, it reduces the potential impact of psychological science to make meaningful progress in diminishing persistent physical and mental health disparities across racial and ethnic groups. Journals play an important role in this gatekeeping process where the actions of editors and reviewers determine which science is disseminated and shape how the science is conducted and reported.
