Asia Research News – Call for Experts

Asia Research News’ Focus On series highlights ongoing research and expertise around one theme or topic.

The next Focus On will be about women, to offer story ideas and sources for International Women’s Day on March 8. They would like to include researchers who are prepared to speak with international media about any research related to women and women’s issues. International media will be interested in research around:

  • Women’s health (reproductive health, menopause, mental health, cancers, etc.)
  • Women-specific drug development
  • Gender equality
  • Women in business/economics
  • Women in politics
  • Women in STEM (science, tech, engineering, math)
  • Women in art, history, sociology, literature, etc.
  • Childcare services
  • Child marriage
  • Education
  • COVID-19

This is just a partial list. If you have researchers working on any aspect around women, even those not already mentioned, you can apply. As part of International Women’s Day, they want to help celebrate everyone involved in research focused on women and celebrate women in our research community.
They would also like to hear about any awesome female researchers making a difference — in any fieldThey do not have to do research focused on/about women. Perhaps they are in physics, biotech, computer science, ocean science, etc.
