Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although a range of policy actions have been made to promote gender equality, female representation in STEM areas is still unsatisfactory. The number of male researchers working in STEM is much larger than for women, and this is a constant in countries all over the world.

This problem is also evident, of course, in metrology. The inbalance between the number of male and female researchers affects the visibility of the work done by women, who rarely have positions that allow them to appear as individual authors or first authors of scientific articles.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this problem, as women in many countries play a central role in household management and childcare, so they have had to sacrifice much of the time usually devoted to work during lockdown periods.

This Special Issue aims to give visibility and better dissemination to research works in metrology where the lead author is a woman (i.e., a person who identifies as a woman) or that are completely authored by women.

Although we encourage women scientists leading research on metrology to submit an original manuscript to this Special Issue, we want to promote a policy of gender equality, we welcome submissions from all authors, irrespective of gender.
