This editorial intends to shine a spotlight on diversity in Digital Journalism scholarship. In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, the Digital Journalism editorial team led an initiative involving some of the world’s leading journals in journalism, communication, media studies, and media management, to provide free access to a series of important articles by female authors. In continuation of what was started on International Women’s Day, this editorial and this virtual special issue presents a collection of research providing some of the best examples of groundbreaking, leading research in Digital Journalism Studies by women. These articles have been selected because they represent different cultural perspectives and/or offer excellent theoretical or empirical scholarship for us to utilize and extend as a global network of scholars. They show why we need to embrace, not ignore, our full community of researchers and their work, as they make it clear that doing so will only enrich the quality of research and encourage a more global, inclusive conversation about digital journalism in these times.
