Mitigating bias in algorithmic systems is a critical issue drawing attention across communities within the information and computer sciences. Given the complexity of the problem and the involvement of multiple stakeholders - including developers, end users, and third-parties - there is a need to understand the landscape of the sources of bias, and the solutions being proposed to address them, from a broad, cross-domain perspective. This survey provides a "fish-eye view,"examining approaches across four areas of research. The literature describes three steps toward a comprehensive treatment - bias detection, fairness management, and explainability management - and underscores the need to work from within the system as well as from the perspective of stakeholders in the broader context.
