Call for manuscripts: Science Education & Civic Engagement

Posted by cience Education & Civic Engagement: An International Journal on November 10, 2014

Science Education & Civic Engagement: An International Journal Call for Manuscripts Submissions for a special issue on civic engagement and informal science education (ISE) to be published in the summer of 2015.

About The Special Issue

The editors of Science Education & Civic Engagement: An International Journal invite manuscript submissions for a special tribute issue of the journal that will focus on informal science education and also serve to highlight the life and work of Alan J. Friedman, Ph.D., who died on May 4, 2014 after a short illness. Alan’s career as a scientist, educator, museum leader, and mentor to students, educators and museum professionals in the United States and abroad exemplifies how a scientist can contribute to the general public’s understanding of the importance of science and its role in our lives. He was committed to encouraging people of all ages, but particularly high school and college students, to engage in scientific inquiry, not only as a career possibility but as a critical dimension of responsible citizenship. Alan’s work with the National Center for Science & Civic Engagement (NCSCE) centered on the development and implementation of SENCER-ISE, which supports the development of cross-sector partnerships. SENCER-ISE is currently funded by the National Science Foundation (DRL-1237463) and the Noyce Foundation.

Submission deadline: February 16, 2015. Please send all inquiries and manuscript submissions to the journal’s managing editor: Marcy Dubroff ([email protected]).
