Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.


  • A panel discussion at a recent Nature Conference highlighted the role of mentorship programmes to tackle gender disparity in Indian universities.

  • Scientists encounter pressure to validate their research work, leading to varied benchmarks and methods for performance assessment in the broad energy research field. Interlaboratory studies help highlight discrepancies in reported figures of merit, underscoring the need for standardized protocols, transparent reporting, and detailed analysis for fair comparisons. Here, we discuss this topic, focusing on battery materials.
