STM Journals is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone and apply the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
Wherever possible, STM Journals will aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines, which states that sites should be:
Perceivable: Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
Operable: User interface components and navigation must be operable.
Understandable: Information and the operation of the user interface must be understandable.
Robust: Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.
To ensure accessibility we also:
Include accessibility as part of our mission statement.
Have internal policies that take accessibility into account.
Incorporate accessibility into our procurement practices.
Have an appointed accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.
Provide our staff with continual accessibility training.
Have clear organizational accessibility targets and responsibilities.
Confirm formal accessibility quality assurance methods.
