Classroom Teacher Archives

Note to Contributors

We solicit high quality articles which are easy to understand and that are of interest to science and mathematics classroom teachers and teacher educators.  We especially encourage articles from classroom teachers and that which is in the form of an action research report or evaluation study. 

 

We prefer the use of simple English with little or non use of technical jargons and complex statistical arguments.  (Otherwise, you may want to consider publishing your article in the International Journal of Science & Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, a peer reviewed journal published by RECSAM)

 

The following are some guideline for your article (but don’t let this intimidate you)

 

Submission of Typescripts

Your paper should be original work and not, in any manner, in breach of copyright. You are requested to provide an electronic copy of the manuscript in a Microsoft Word file to expedite the publication process. Electronic copies can be sent by e-mail or in CD-ROM in ‘crush-proof’ packing.  If your article contains videos, audio or applets/flashlets, the total size must not exceed 5 MB.

 

Dateline for submission is 31 July for the November issue of that year.

 

Editorial conventions. Articles should be in English, typed single-spaced, using A4 paper size, portrait orientated with one inch (1") margins on all sides. Use Times New Roman size 12 and Justified.
