NSTA’s Journal Connected Science Learning Call for Submissions

The National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) has recently convened a study group, funded by the National Science Foundation, in association with its online journal Connected Science Learning (CSL). The primary goal of this study group was to identify topical areas for future journal articles that would bring value to those who research, develop, implement, and evaluate connected STEM learning experiences.

The study group has identified five priority themes for future issues of Connected Science Learning. As a result, NSTA is now seeking applications for invited articles on these themes. Invited manuscripts will be published between September 2021 and June 2022. 

The journal defines “connected STEM learning experiences” as those that bridge the gap between in-school and out-of-school learning settings. Within this context, the journal’s editors seek to publish articles that highlight practice-informed research, research-informed practice, partnerships between multiple organizations, blended teaching and learning practices from formal and informal settings, and/or transdisciplinary integration across the STEM disciplines as well as between STEM disciplines and non-STEM fields.

To submit an abstract for consideration, please complete the following steps:

  1. Review the themes identified by the study group
  2. Read CSL’s submission guidelines to familiarize yourself with the journal’s goals
  3. Complete this application form

Please submit your abstract(s) on or before Monday, March 29, 2021, at 11 am ET.
