It is the only English-language journal focused exclusively on science teacher education.

“I am so honored and privileged to receive this co-editor role,” said Geeta Verma. “Science education has a key role in equipping students around the globe with the capacity to make informed decisions about issues that affect them and their societies. My goal is to actively seek out global and diverse perspectives on science teacher education to benefit the next generation of science education researchers, science leaders, and science teachers.”
