About this journal

The Journal of Science Education and Technology is an international and interdisciplinary forum for both invited and contributed peer reviewed articles that advance science education at all levels. The journal publishes a broad range of papers covering theory and practice in order to facilitate future efforts of individuals and groups involved in the field.

Topics fall under the categories of disciplinary (e.g., biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering), technological (e.g., computer, video, audio, and print), or organizational (e.g., legislation, administration, implementation, and teacher enhancement). Recognizing technology’s growing role in both the understanding and development of science and in the delivery of information, the journal includes technology as a component of science education.

In addition to original research articles, the journal publishes case studies and reviews of books, media, software, and other relevant products.
