We are delighted to present the inaugural Frontiers in Chemistry 'Women in Science: Chemistry' article collection.

At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging girls and women away from science related fields, and STEM research in particular. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO. In order to change traditional mindsets, gender equality must be promoted, stereotypes defeated, and girls and women should be encouraged to pursue STEM careers.

Following the UNESCO’s official celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Frontiers in Chemistry is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women scientists, across all fields of chemistry.

The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of the chemical sciences and presents advances in theory, experiment and methodology with applications to compelling problems.

This article collection is open for submissions across all sections of the journal, and new articles will be added as they are published.

Please note: to be considered for this collection, the corresponding author should be a female researcher.


Keywords: Women, STEM, Diversity, UNESCO, International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Chemistry


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
