Chemistry Education

RSC Advances in Chemistry Education Book Series

The RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) is inviting proposals for a new series of scholarly books on chemistry education. The overview of the RSC Advances in Chemistry Education series is provided below.


Books in the Series may review developments in areas of chemistry education internationally or may report on a single educational context where the work has clear international significance; may cover formal education, informal education, teacher education/development or public understanding of chemistry; and may cover innovations in chemical education practice where suitable evidence of research-based evaluation is included.

Possible volume themes

Topics covered could include

  • Learners’ thinking about and understanding of chemistry topics
  • Approaches to teaching chemistry and chemistry topics
  • The use of technology in chemistry teaching and learning
  • Assessment of learning in chemistry education
  • Classroom processes during chemistry teaching and learning
  • The chemistry curriculum/chemistry in the curriculum
  • Analysis and design of teaching resources such as textbooks
  • Chemistry teacher preparation and development
  • Initiatives to improve public understanding of chemistry
  • Learning of chemistry from popular media
  • Developments in research methodology as applied in chemistry education

The Series is intended to provide volumes of high quality and significance in the field of chemistry education research for researchers and postgraduates. Books will be produced as either single-authored monographs or edited collections.
