Journal Subscriptions

Members receive two journals as part of their membership in ASTE, and may also subscribe at a reduced rate to Science Education.

The Journal of Science Teacher Education (JSTE) – The organization’s flagship journal for research in teacher education.  The Journal of Science Teacher Education (JSTE) serves as a forum for disseminating research and theoretical position statements concerning the preservice and inservice education of science teachers. The journal features empirically and theoretically based articles that suggest ways to improve classroom teaching, inservice workshops, and teacher recruitment and retention. In addition, there are data-driven research articles that show evidence of the effectiveness of teaching strategies and interventions, as well as other issues related to science teacher education. JSTE is a publication that adds to what we know about science teaching and learning but, most importantly, serves as a catalyst for thoughtful discussion concerning the improvement of the education of teachers in science.  One year’s print subscription is included with all ASTE membership levels. With your membership you also receive access to back issues of the JSTE, which are available online through the publisher. JSTE is published electronically eight times per year and printed double issues are mailed to all members four times per year.  For more information

Innovations in Science Teacher Education (Innovations) is the official practitioner journal of the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE). Innovations is an online, peer-reviewed journal that serves as a forum for disseminating effective instructional practices that are innovative and inspirational. Articles will provide concrete ideas for enhancing teaching for all those associated with preparing and supporting the professional development of K-12 science teachers in clear, understandable, non-technical, practical prose. Articles in Innovations are written by science teacher educators for science teacher educators, in the broadest sense of the word. The journal publishes four issues annually (January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1) and is abstracted and indexed in the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) System Database and Google Scholar. We seek manuscripts that are based on a firm foundation of scholarly work in science education and provide concrete ideas and strategies that enhance and inform science educators’ practices in their own setting, context and with their unique student population. The activities, ideas and strategies described in the manuscripts could include a single lesson idea, a course redesign, a common theme for a course, teacher education program redesign, professional development program settings, or a collaborative effort with other departments involved in science teacher education.
