The Science Educator, official journal of The National Science Education Leadership Association (NSELA), is a refereed journal which seeks manuscripts dealing with topics and issues of interest to professionals involved in science education leadership across a variety of roles, institutions and agencies. The journal is published bi-annually. The journal serves as a vehicle for the exchange of information on current theory, research and teaching/learning applications. Articles by both researchers and practitioners are encouraged. Generally articles are sought that aid researchers and practitioners in making informed decisions to improve science teaching and learning. Of particular interest are topics that deal with science education reform, science education leadership, preservice and inservice teacher enhancement/professional development, teaching and learning, needs assessment, research and evaluation, and policies and practices.
