Women in Nanotechnology

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.
