Focus and Scope

STEM Education Review is an online open-access journal that focuses on the study of learning and teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

STEM education refers to a series of talent training activities related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. In practice, STEM education usually stands for the collection of all scientific and technological disciplines parallel with the social sciences and humanities in higher education, which is equivalent to the science and engineering education in China and the MINT education in Germany. Meanwhile, it refers to the integrated multidisciplinary science education covering subjects such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics in basic education which emphasizes collaboration, communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity.

As a peer-reviewed journal, STEMER is positioned to stimulate research and to encourage academic exchange in order to promote the development of STEM education around the world.

With the goal to become an international leading journal of STEM education in the future, STEMER seeks to provide an open and innovative international forum for peer-reviewed empirically, historically and theoretically based articles and scholarly reviews and essays on experiences and achievements in management, practice, scientific research, education and training in the field of STEM education.

Contributions will be encouraged from scholars within and across STEM fields (e.g., science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and social science fields (e.g., education, psychology, and sociology) to promote scholarly exchange and discussion on emerging issues and frontier research in STEM education including elementary education, post-secondary education, under-graduate education and graduate education. STEMER welcomes papers in forms of Editorials, Review articles, Original Research, Perspectives, Opinions and Commentaries, Recommendations and Consensus from scholars across a range of career stages.
