NSTA’s peer-reviewed journals for middle and high school teachers, Science Scope and The Science Teacher, are looking for middle and high school science educators who are interested in contributing to the field, while also building their professional networks. Peer review is an important part of ensuring the articles published in NSTA journals are accurate, relevant, and reflective of real-life practices. NSTA relies on volunteer peer-review panels to evaluate potential articles and refine them for publication.
Using NSTA’s online manuscript review system, educators can select their areas of interest or expertise, such as assessment, inquiry, or subject. They can also indicate when they are unavailable to review manuscripts. The field editor for each journal assigns manuscripts to reviewers based on the information supplied. Reviewers can be at any career level, but they must be willing to provide clear, thoughtful feedback on manuscripts.
f you are interested in joining NSTA’s review panels, please e-mail your curriculum vitae and a brief statement explaining why you want to review and your areas of special interest and expertise to Stephen Metz, The Science Teacher field editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Inez Liftig, Science Scope field editor, at email@example.com.
