About this Research Topic
This Research Topic highlights the international role of women and non-binary researchers in the development of the field of supramolecular chemistry. It is supported by the international Women In Supramolecular Chemistry (WISC) network, which works to support and create a community for women, non-binary, and marginalized researchers in the field. This article collection was conceived within the scope of the first WISC workshop (September 2021), an event organized to enable both education and community-building for early-career researchers.
We are interested in receiving manuscripts for consideration from all principal investigators. However, all articles must include at least one woman or non-binary author (principal investigator, post-doctoral researcher, research fellow, PhD, Masters, or undergraduate student). A short description highlighting how the team devised and carried out the project while promoting a diverse and inclusive environment should be included with the submission, as well as a list of the contributions of each author. We hope that the inclusion of this information will highlight the contributions of women and non-binary supramolecular chemists across the globe and promote an inclusive and diverse community.
The aim of this Research Topic is to showcase the greatest variety possible of different types of supramolecular chemistry advancements within the solution state, gas phase, solid state, and in silico. Therefore, we welcome Original Research articles and topical Reviews with a focus on non-covalent interactions, sensors, supramolecular materials, supramolecular catalysis, logic gates, and host-guest as well as self-associative interactions.
In addition, we are also interested in considering contributions relating to the career progression of women, non-binary, or marginalized researchers within chemistry.
