                                               Aims and Scope
  The Journal of Nano Education (JNE) is a peer-reviewed international journal that aims to provide the most complete and reliable source of information on current developments in nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education. JNE publishes a comprehensive range of articles including topics in the following areas:

  • Nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education at the K-12, undergraduate and graduate levels (formal and informal, including public outreach and dissemination activities);
  • K-12 science teacher education and professional development;
  • Scientific and technological literacy/public understanding of nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medicine;
  • Curriculum development and assessment;
  • Social and ethical issues associated with nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical research;
  • Workforce preparation (professional and vocational);
  • National and state science standards and their relationships to the goals of nanoeducation initiatives worldwide;
  • Current nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education research;
  • Other pertinent areas of interest to nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical researchers & educators. JNE also will serve as a forum for commentary and debate on related issues.

JNE welcomes various types of manuscripts for review and publication consideration, including those utilizing philosophical/theoretical, socio-historical, ethnographic, experimental, quasi-experimental, case study, survey, quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method approaches. All manuscripts submitted for review and publication consideration must clearly demonstrate a focus on issues of teaching and learning associated with nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medicine. JNE encourages the submission of manuscripts that explicitly demonstrate an emphasis on scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) pertinent to nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education. Additionally, JNE especially is interested in soliciting scholarly manuscripts that address the development of a comprehensive knowledge base in nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education.

   
  READERSHIP
  Manuscripts published in JNE primarily are aimed at the following groups involved in various aspects of teaching and learning of nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medicine:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and medical education instructors (K-12, undergraduate, graduate);
  • Science, technology, engineering, and medical education researchers;
  • Science, technology, engineering, and medical laboratory researchers interested in education and public outreach efforts;
  • State/national K-12 science supervisors;
  • Science, technology, engineering, and medical education policy-makers and analysts;
  • Researchers and educators in related science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with an interest in nanoscale science, technology, engineering, and medical education;
  • Nanotechnology business and industry personnel interested in workforce education and professional training.
