About this Research Topic
We are delighted to present the inaugural article collection "Women in Nanotechnology".
At present, less than 30% of STEM researchers worldwide are women. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging girls and women 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.
Frontiers in Nanotechnology is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women scientists, across all nanotechnology-related fields. The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of the nanotechnology field and presents advances in theory, experiment and methodology with applications to compelling problems.
Scope: 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 that, in order to be considered for this collection, one or all of the corresponding authors must be female researchers.
Keywords: Women, STEM, Women in Science, Gender Equality, Nanotechnology, Women in STEM, Women in Engineering, UNESCO
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.
