ASTE Survey about Regions and Conference Organization

At the Town Hall meeting at the 2019 ASTE Conference, members discussed the Board structure and conference timing/location.  We would like to hear from all members about these important issues.  To refresh your memory, please re-read the article about the Townhall that was printed in the ASTE Newsletter

https://theaste.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Winter-2019-v.3.pdf

We hope you will take a few minutes to respond to a short survey to help the Board with these important issues even if you did not attend the Town Hall or weren’t able to attend the conference.

JSTE Indexed!

Some great news! Taylor and Francis advised us that the Journal of Science Teacher Education (JSTE) is now included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). There is a stiff reviewing process to be selected for this Index, so this is an important recognition of the quality of JSTE. Being included in ESCI will make it easier for others to search, find, and cite articles published in JSTE, further enhancing the impact of the journal. Thanks to the Lead Editors, Norm and Judy Lederman, the Editorial staff, Associate Editors, the Publications Committee, our reviewers and, of course, our authors for continuing to make our journal a “go to” read for our profession!
