Women in Engineering: Solving real-life problems today for a better tomorrow

Five women engineers based at the Biotribology lab at Imperial College London tell us about their work, their aspirations for the future, and advice for other women considering careers in engineering.

They tell us about their work to understand and recreate human cartilage to reduce the need for animal testing, to improve the longevity of hip and knee replacements, and techniques that could help to treat aggressive brain cancers.

We hope you find their stories as inspiring as we do.

Open access options

Open access lies at the core of Elsevier’s publishing mission – in fact, today, more than 90 percent of the journals we launch are gold OA and over 1,900 of our subscription titles offer gold OA options. That means finding the right open access home for your research is easy.

Whatever route you choose, publishing with Elsevier means your work benefits from the input of expert editors and reviewers. And if you publish gold open access, it is immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download from ScienceDirect. Our gold OA titles also feature in major indexes and databases.
