Invitation: Special Issue of The Canadian Journal for Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education

The Canadian Journal for Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education
Special Issue on:
Environmental Education in Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education
Call for Manuscripts

Deadline for Statements of Interest: January 15, 2009
Deadline for Submission of Full Manuscripts: August 8, 2009

This special issue of the Canadian Journal for Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education will focus on environmental education. While the environment has received some attention in science education, including in the STSE movement, far fewer connections have been made between environmental education and mathematics and technology education. We are particularly interested in the relationships between environmental education and science, mathematics, or technology education in terms of ontology, epistemology, pedagogy, and policy. We are open to receiving manuscripts on a wide array of topics, representing a variety of research and theoretical traditions, so long as the connections between environmental education and at least one of the curricular areas of science, mathematics, and technology are clear.

Submission guidelines:
Statements of interest should include the title of the proposed manuscript and an extended abstract (500-word maximum). The abstract should: (a) describe the approach (e.g., theoretical, empirical, etc.) taken; (b) clearly state the connection between environmental education and at least one of science, mathematics, or technology education; and (c) provide either an overview of data to be analyzed and discussed and/or key arguments to be made in the paper. Please include as much relevant information as possible.

The format for full manuscripts should adhere to APA style (Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 5th edition). All final submissions should include an abstract of 100 words. Manuscripts should be typewritten, double-spaced, and not exceed 6000 words including references (but excluding figures and tables). Margins should be one inch on all sides. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically and include a separate file containing the author(s) name, address, telephone number, FAX number, and email address.

Manuscripts will be anonymously peer-reviewed by three national and/or international scholars appropriate to the topic and content. The articles should be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be required to submit a brief biographical statement outlining the author’s areas of study, teaching, and current research interests.

Please forward statements of interest or any questions regarding this issue to Guest Editors:
