Women in Science: Water and Climate

About this Research Topic

We are delighted to present the inaugural Frontiers in Water 'Women in Science: Water and Climate’ article collection.

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 Water is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women scientists in the field of Hydroclimatology. The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of this field, and presents advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems.

The collection will encourage the submission of manuscripts where the lead and/or corresponding author identifies as female, and we recommend early career researchers to team up with senior female colleagues. Male-led research is also welcome, provided it explores themes relevant to this special collection.

Please note: to be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman. Male-led research is also welcome, provided it explores themes relevant to this special collection.

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.
