Global health is all about including the excluded, and researchers of low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) are its major stakeholders. However, these researchers find themselves excluded and marginalised as authors in global health publications; they are also under-represented within editorial workforces and are recipients of unconscious biases that affect editorial decision-making processes at major journals.Major reforms are required for the decolonisation of global health and for the correction of such disproportionate imbalance of power in global health academia.
