Journal of STEM Education
:: The Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, is now available online:
The Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research is a half yearly, peer-reviewed publication for educators in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. The journal emphasizes real-world case studies that focus on issues that are relevant and important to STEM practitioners. These studies may showcase field research as well as secondary-sourced cases. The journal encourages case studies that cut across the different STEM areas and that cover non-technical issues such as finance, cost, management, risk, safety, etc. Case studies are typically framed around problems and issues facing a decision maker in an organization.The journal began with a March 2000 issue, at which time it was called Journal of SMET Education: Innovations and Research. The name changed with the v4, issue3-4, July-Dec 2003 issue, "to reflect a change in usage by the National Science Foundation, which has adopted the term “STEM” to emphasize that the focus needs to be on science, technology, engineering and math." Abstracts are available from v1 issue1, April 2000 to v4 issues1-2, January-June 2003.
