About this Research Topic
We are delighted to present the inaugural Frontiers in Sports and Active Living 'Women in Sports and Active Living” series of article collections.
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. 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 equally represented in the proportion of researchers worldwide.
Therefore, Frontiers in Sports and Active Living is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women researchers, across all fields of sports and physical activity.
The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of sports-related research and presents advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems.
Please note: to be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman.
Keywords: Anti-doping, Doping, interventions, sport, performance enhancing substances, supplements
