Journal of Nanobiotechnology's Collection

Women in Nanobiotechnology

Journal of Nanobiotechnology invites submissions to a collection on Women in Nanobiotechnology.

We are proud to announce the inaugural collection featuring Women in Nanobiotechnology (WiN). Women researchers have made enormous contributions to knowledge advancement in the field of nanobiotechnology. However, it has been noted that the STEM fields, including nanobiotechnology, have remained predominantly male with low participation of women. The WiN collection aims to highlight female researchers’ achievements and their significant contributions to the nanobiotechnology field, and to encourage more women to participate in science and technology, towards gender equity and equality in the scientific community. Taking the WiN as a starting point, we hope to create a progressive, inclusive environment that encourages more women in nanobiotechnology research to lead and excel.

Submissions of original Research Article and Review papers, having corresponding authors who are women, are invited to this ongoing collection. Please submit via journal online submission system and indicate at the Additional Information stage of submission that you are submitting to the Women in Nanobiotechnology collection. All manuscripts received will be subject to editorial triage and peer review as is standard for the journal.

Articles will be published continuously in the main journal and highlighted on the collection homepage as soon as they are ready.
