This issue will showcase the diverse and profoundly influential contributions that women have made to the fields of chemical physics and physical chemistry. It will do so in two ways: by featuring contributions from leading women researchers, and by providing a forum in which scientific authors from the entire chemical physics/physical chemistry community can dedicate a paper to any woman or group of women in the field, past or present. The honoree’s contributions can be in the form of scientific or technical advances, science policy, education, mentoring, administration, or leadership. The honoree(s) can be of any station, such as colleagues, students, mentors, or historical figures. Articles are welcome regardless of the authors’ gender. Examples of dedications are given below. We anticipate that this collection of articles will be of exceptionally high quality, commensurate with the women being honored. Articles on any topic within the scope of the journal are welcome.
