Author Guidelines

The scope of EJSE is limited to manuscripts relating to issues in science education/science teacher education from early childhood through the university level and informal science and environmental education.  Manuscripts that are well-written and support the dissemination of substantive research, theory, and innovative perspectives will be considered for publication.  We welcome science education manuscripts that report meaningful research, present research methodology, develop theory, and explore new perspectives.  EJSE does not accept manuscripts that are primarily describing lesson plans, activities, teaching strategies, courses, or programs.  EJSE is an open access journal with a vigorous peer-review process and high standards for publication.

Articles should be in MS Word format and use the latest APA formate. There is no page limit.

All tables and figures must be placed within the text where appropriate, not appended to the end of the manuscript. Please do not use "Insert Table X about here" in the manuscript.

The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses).

The style manual followed for publication in EJSE is the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA). The electronic nature of EJSE requires some minor formatting modifications to the APA style as noted above.
