I think this needs to be addressed on a number of fronts. First, it is critically important to increase the diversity of editors, associate editors and reviewers, regardless of the ethnic composition of the papers being submitted. That is, more scholars of color need to be included in the review process at all levels, not just for publications focused on populations of color.Second, editors need to proactively provide constructive feedback to reviewers who identify the need for a White comparison group in their reviews of papers focused on populations of color. This could even be a part of the guidance given to reviewers in advance.Finally, journals should expand their policies requiring samples to be contextualized in the abstract and methods. For Child Development in particular, this will require increasing the current word limit for abstracts of papers submitted to Child Development.
