Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Physics: Women in Physics

Posted By Administration, 31 October 2014

Deadline for manuscript submissions: March 14, 2015.

Special Issue Information
The Asian Journal of Physics invites authors of original articles and reviews exploring all aspects and issues, related to women in physics, from both present and historical perspective, to submit them to a Special Issue focused on this subject.
Until the 20th century, women did not have access to higher education institutions. Hence, with a very few exceptions, it was impossible for them to contribute to scientific discovery. There has been a gradual change in this trend since the beginning of the 20th century. Nevertheless, even nowadays, women’s representation in physics lags behind most other science disciplines, making up about 13% of faculty members in all physics degree–granting departments.
The Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Physics Vol 24, No 3, 2015 will focus on all aspects of the work and the impact of the women in physics. All contribution to this area are welcome.

View details about this on the website of the ASIAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS.

Examples of Best Practice in Promoting Gender Equality

Posted By Administration, 25 August 2014
DFG, 22 August 2014 - Relaunch of the ‘Instrumentenkasten’ Portal / DFG (German Research Foundation) Commitment to Equal Opportunities in Research and Academia

With its relaunch of the German-language website "Instrumentenkasten" (toolbox), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) once again underlines its commitment to equal opportunities and gender equality in research and academia. Speaking on the launch of the website, DFG Secretary General Dorothee Dzwonnek said: "We must send strong signals to counter the discrimination of women in research, which is not only unfair but a waste of considerable intellectual potential."
