The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the American Chemical Society’s Division of Chemical Education will partner to publish the Journal of Chemical Education (JCE) beginning with the January 2010 issue of the journal.
JCE is the premier journal for chemical education, providing educators with a resource serving all teachers of chemistry including current information that impacts the teaching and understanding of specific chemistry content along with research on the teaching and learning of chemistry itself. In addition, JCE includes information about opportunities such as conferences, workshops and new curricula and teaching methods and materials. The journal publishes full peer-reviewed articles, reviews, and feature columns covering chemical education through the graduate level.
The research community at large and specifically educators benefit from the partnership with integration of all JCE articles dating back to 1924 onto the award winning ACS Web Editions Platform. With more than 28 million searches already conducted on the ACS site alone in 2009, this translates to significant exposure for JCE. Authors and reviewers for the journal will now also enjoy new efficiencies via the ACS Paragon Plus Environment for real-time, Web-based manuscript submission and peer review.
