We present an academic index allowing comparative study of gender inequality through space and time, the Wikipedia Gender Index (WIGI), based on metadata(More)
The platinum (Pt)-group elements (PGEs) represent a new kind of environmental pollutant and a new hazard for human health.

Furthermore the impacts of efforts to address this gender gap have received little attention.

A comprehensive study of magnetocaloric effect (MCE) and critical behaviour in the ferrimagnetic Mn2–pyridazine–[Nb(CN)8] molecular magnet under hydrostatic pressure is reported. The pressure-induced structural changes provoke the strengthening of magnetic interaction between Mn and Nb centres. Consequently, an increase of critical temperature Tc is(More)
