Aims and Scope

Journal of Turkish Science Education (TUSED) publishes scholarly papers that concentrate on science teaching and learning in school settings ranging from early childhood to higher education as well as workplace and informal learning, which are related to science education. Hence, its purpose is to link research with practice by providing information, ideas, opinions, and insights. As an international journal, the TUSED welcomes contributions from any country, which explains their national contexts and associates the significance of their work with a global readership.

In looking for research to publish, the TUSED seeks manuscripts that advance our knowledge in science education research rather than reproducing what we have already known. Thus, the TUSED is also interested in producing valid and trustworthy research that covers new capabilities of science learning/teaching and innovative practices in science learning/teaching. The TUSED especially emphasizes research in educational practice, and educational realities in systems, schools, and universities. Even though the TUSED is directly concerned with science education, it also welcomes manuscripts on interdisciplinary research where science education forefronted, e.g., Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM), health, environment, neuroscience, cognitive science.

With those in mind, the contributions should be;

  • Theoretically grounded,
  • Relevant to science education theories,
  • Discusses deeply the future implications.

The TUSED is the journal associated with Firtina Academy Campany which provides educational services to public institutions, and private companies.
