Qualifications:

  • Competence in research and/or methodology within some aspect of science teacher education.
  • Ability to judge the quality of a manuscript within an area of science teacher education.
  • Ability to identify particular strengths and weaknesses of a manuscript and, in a professional manner, offer suggestions for revising manuscripts.
  • Established record of publication in peer-reviewed science education and/or related journals.
  • Established record as an editorial reviewer for peer-reviewed science education journals and/or proposals for professional science education conferences.

Duties and Responsibilities if Selected:
