The Journal of Chemical Education is the official journal of the Division of Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society, co-published with the American Chemical Society Publications Division. Launched in 1924, the Journal of Chemical Education is the world’s premier chemical education journal. The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles and related information as a resource to those in the field of chemical education and to those institutions that serve them. JCE typically addresses chemical content, activities, laboratory experiments, instructional methods, and pedagogies. The Journal serves as a means of communication among people across the world who are interested in the teaching and learning of chemistry. This includes instructors of chemistry from middle school through graduate school, professional staff that support these teaching activities, as well as some scientists in commerce, industry, and government.
Journal Sections and Types of Content
The Journal of Chemical Education is a monthly, subscription-only journal published both in print and online. In addition to the full-text articles appearing in both venues, supplemental materials in a variety of formats are published online. Electronic formats of archival content are available from 1924 (Volume 1) to the present. The content of the Journal is currently organized into several sections that define the materials primary use or function:
- General information: News, commentary, reports, columns, and book/media reviews.
- Content for a broad audience: Descriptions of applications, history, or interdisciplinary activities or those that promote public understanding.
- Content from or for the classroom: Teaching tips, methods, demonstrations, content, and principles.
- Content from or for the laboratory: Experiments, demonstrations, techniques, equipment, or instrumentation.
- Research in education and science: Descriptions of chemical education research based on learning theories, tested by experiments, and corroborated by data; or scientific research with a clear and direct connection to teaching or learning.
- Classroom Activities: Hands-on activities that can be done in the classroom or laboratory and/or as a take-home project.
Within or across sections, JCE is also organized using a set of Features. Features can describe an audience (e.g., Secondary School Chemistry), a type of laboratory experiment (e.g., Green Chemistry or Microscale), a column or report type (e.g., Research Advances), or a practical attribute (e.g., Cost Effective Teacher). Feature Editors donate their time and expertise, serving as authors, organizers, or reviewers.
