Aims and Scope

The International Journal of STEM Education is a multidisciplinary journal in subject-content education that focuses on the study of teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The journal provides a unique platform for sharing research regarding, among other topics, the design and implementation of technology-rich learning environments, innovative pedagogies, and curricula in STEM education that promote successful learning in Pre K-16 levels including teacher education. We are also interested in studies that address specific challenges in improving students’ achievement, approaches used to motivate and engage students, and lessons learned from changes in curriculum and instruction in STEM education. The journal encourages translational STEM education research that bridges research and educational policy and practice for STEM education improvement. Read more 

Citing articles in International Journal of STEM Education

Articles in International Journal of STEM Education should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal. Because articles are not printed, they do not have page numbers; instead, they are given a unique article number and a DOI (digital object identifier). 

Article citations follow this format in Vancouver style:
English LD, Watson JM. Exploring variation in measurement as a foundation for statistical thinking in the elementary school. Int J STEM Educ. 2015;2:3

referring to article 3 from Volume 2 of the journal.

In APA style citing the DOI is preferred:
English, L.D., & Watson J.M. (2015). Exploring variation in measurement as a foundation for statistical thinking in the elementary school. Int J STEM Educ. doi: 10.1186/s40594-015-0016-x.

The Book Series: Advances in STEM Education

Advances in STEM Education is a new book series with a focus on cutting-edge research and knowledge development in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education from pre-college through continuing education around the world. Read more
