About this Research Topic
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.
Therefore, Frontiers in Veterinary Science is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of female scientists, across all fields of Veterinary Neurology & Neurosurgery.
The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of Veterinary Neurology & Neurosurgery research and presents advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems.
The field of Veterinary Neurology & Neurosurgery has been rapidly advancing due to increased availability of diagnostic modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography, new pharmacologic treatments, neurosurgical equipment and expertise. There is a need for high-quality studies to improve understanding, treatment, prognosis and prevention of disorders affecting the central and peripheral nervous system and increase the body of scientific evidence that can be translated into best practice.
This section welcomes submission of Retrospective and Prospective studies, Clinical trials, Cross-sectional studies, Cohort/ longitudinal studies, Case Reports, Case series, Review articles, Metanalyses and Systematic Reviews about all aspects of veterinary neurology and neurosurgery. Studies with robust methodology leading to clinically relevant and clinically applicable results to optimize patient care and inform discussion with the pet-owners are of particular interest.
Please note: to be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman.
