How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research (J-PEER) is issued electronically twice a year and serves as a forum and community space for the publication of research and evaluation reports on areas of pre-college STEM education, particularly in engineering. J-PEER targets scholars and practitioners in the new and expanding field of pre-college engineering education. This journal invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work in the form of (1) research papers or (2) shorter practitioner reports in numerous areas of STEM education, with a special emphasis on cross-disciplinary approaches incorporating engineering. J-PEER publishes a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: research articles on elementary and secondary students’ learning; curricular and extracurricular approaches to teaching engineering in elementary and secondary school; professional development of teachers and other school professionals; comparative approaches to curriculum and professional development in engineering education; parents’ attitudes toward engineering; and the learning of engineering in informal settings.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
