Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The open access journal, Fire acknowledges the need to recognize underrepresented voices in fire-science, such as indigenous and racial minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and the LGBTQIA community, who all bring different areas of knowledge in science and ways of taking action. This Special Collection seeks to highlight the contributions of these individuals through invited contributions. If you believe that an individual scientist should be highlighted for their contributions to fire science, suggestions can be sent to the Collection Editors for consideration.

We look forward to receiving your recommendations.

Across the breadth of fire science disciplines, women are leaders in fire research and development. We want to acknowledge some of these leaders to promote diversity across our disciplines. In Fire, we are also happy to announce a new Special Collection, through which we will continue to acknowledge current and future Diversity Leaders in Fire Science by inviting contributions from the leaders in this editorial, among others.
