Primary Science

For anyone involved in the science education of children aged 3-12 years – Primary Science (PS)

PS is aimed at primary teachers, primary science co-ordinators, primary schools, local authority advisers and inspectors and science teacher trainers and trainees. It is a forum for sharing information and ideas and includes articles about teaching, learning and assessing science. PS aims to spread good practice in primary science teaching and to help practitioners improve their background science knowledge and understanding and to keep up to date with curriculum developments and new resources.

School Science Review

For anyone involved in school science education for students ages 11-19 – School Science Review (SSR)

Published quarterly, SSR includes a diverse collection of peer-reviewed articles, on topics ranging from astronomy to polar bonds, from bioethics education to writing up experiments co-operatively, from reviews of science education developments to using football and tennis as a context for physics. Teachers often turn first to Science Notes, which are short articles on classroom and lab practice. 

Science Teacher Education

A once-termly online journal for all concerned with the pre-service education, induction and professional development of science teachers, including guidance for trainees in the classroom, a round-up of the latest research affecting science education in the UK and overseas, news and book reviews.

ASE International

Coming out three times a year, this online journal comprises a mixture of previously published articles from other ASE journals and original material concerning the teaching of science in a global sense – it is the main method of communication with our international colleagues.

Journal Of Emergent Science

For anyone involved in research in primary science education – Journal of Emergent Science (JES)

JES fills an existing gap in the national and international market and complements the ASE practitioner journal, PS, in that it focuses on research and the implications of research on practice and provision, reports on current research and provides reviews of research. JES is an open­ access e­-journal and is supported by the Primary Science Teaching Trust. (Please note that JES has always been Open Access).
