We are delighted to present the inaugural Frontiers in Big Data "Women in Big Data Networks” 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, 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 Big Data is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women scientists, across the fields of Big Data Networks. This editorial initiative of particular relevance is led by Associate Editors Osnat Mokryn and Xiangliang Zhang. The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of Big Data Networks 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 is a woman.

Keywords: Women In, Big data analytics, Network analytics, decision-making models, computational models, #CollectionSeries

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.
