Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the past three decades there has been some progress in women empowerment in the areas of politics and education. There has also been an increase in the enrolment of women in higher education. However, women in science still face barriers to professional advancement.
Therefore, we are delighted to present this special collection of articles highlighting the achievements of women environmental scientists and toxicologists, and furthering our understanding of the exposure, effects, and risks of chemicals and materials in humans and the natural environment as well as approaches to assessing and/or managing the toxicological and ecotoxicological risks of chemicals and materials.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- The occurrence, transport, and fate of chemicals and materials in different systems (e.g., food, air, water, soil);
- Exposure of humans and the environment to toxic chemicals and materials as well as modelling and experimental approaches for characterizing the exposure in, e.g., water, air, soil, food, and consumer products;
- Uptake, metabolism, and effects of chemicals and materials in a wide range of systems including in-vitro toxicological assays, aquatic and terrestrial organisms and ecosystems, model mammalian systems, and humans;
- Approaches to assess the risks of chemicals and materials to humans and the environment;
- Methodologies to eliminate or reduce the exposure of humans and the environment to toxic chemicals and materials.
We invite contributions to the Special Issue whose lead authors identify as women. The submission of articles with all-women authorship is especially encouraged. However, we welcome submissions from all authors, irrespective of gender.
