ESERA Science Education Research Series
The Science Education Research Series is the international, multidisciplinary book series of the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA). The series will be published under the imprint of an established publishing house (Springer) but will also carry the ESERA logo.
The aim of the series is to enhance the quality and impact of research in science education in Europe. To achieve this, it will present and discuss, for the benefit of the scholarly community and other users of research, the findings of high-quality research in the domain of science education and in-depth explorations of specific methodological strands in science education research. The series aims to publish books that are innovative in the issues they explore, or the methods they use, or the ways in which emergent knowledge in the field is represented. It will include edited collections of chapters on a specific theme, monographs and handbooks.
The ESERA book series will focus primarily on research carried out in Europe. However, contributions from researchers affiliated with non-European institutions and non-members of the European Science Education Research Association are also welcomed.
ESERA is currently organized into 19 strands and the intention is to offer a publication forum that will appeal to all these research domains. (The current list of Strands is attached as an appendix at the end of this document.)
The procedure for proposing a book for the ESERA series, and for supporting the development of accepted proposals, follows that which is used by Springer for general book proposals. The advantage to authors of seeking to publish in the ESERA series is that their book will be available to ESERA members at a greatly reduced price and will be actively marketed at ESERA and other conferences – both leading to many more people reading it.
