  1. Living Science: The truth is in the distribution

    Indira M Raman
    There may be as many ways to think about the experience of women in science as there are women in science.
  2. Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review

    Markus Helmer et al.
    Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.
  3. Cutting Edge: Science hackathons for developing interdisciplinary research and collaborations

    Derek Groen, Ben Calderhead
    Science hackathons can help academics, particularly those in the early stage of their careers, to build collaborations and write research proposals.
