Women in Science

Read and share the stories from our authors and editors covering Physical Sciences, Engineering and more

Women have come a long way in enriching the scientific community - yet there's still more to be achieved. We are recognizing women researchers who, through the scope of their work have contributed towards the development in STEM research.

From now through August, we will be putting together a collection of personal stories and exciting content, with a focus in the field of Physical Sciences and Engineering. 

We invite you to explore the collection of over 50 inspiring stories from our authors and editors, who share with us their journeys in the different areas of practice, and how they have flourished. 

All articles are free until August 31st 2019, so read and share the research now. Open access articles are freely available online on a permanent basis.
