Dear Colleagues,

The European Journal of STEM Education is an open access, academic, peer reviewed international journal that publishes original research related to STEM education. The aim is to contribute to scholarly understanding of teaching and learning practices and policies in the area of STEM, as well as to contribute to the improvement of educational practices. Read more about the journal on our webpage.

For our Special Issue on STEM & ARTS EDUCATION we invite you to submit articles that focus on the mutual contributions of STEM and the Arts to teaching and learning. EJSTEME is a double blinded open access journal. For this special issue, no fee is levied.

The Special Issue will be published and presented on the occasion of the international symposium on STEM & The Arts, to be held in the Netherlands on November 17, 2021. This symposium is organized by the Dutch Platform Arts/Sciences, which is sponsored by the Dutch Research Council NWO.

Contributions may be empirical or conceptual. They may focus on specific designs, materials, or technologies but also on more generic qualities, such as imagination, curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, cultural sensitivity, cooperation or executive functioning. There should be a clear relation to development or (formal) learning and schools: day care, pre-K, Kindergarten, primary/elementary, secondary, vocational, higher education, and/or in teacher training colleges.

We invite you to first submit a proposal outlining your ideas. The guest editors will select the proposals that suit the special issue. They will notify you and keep in touch with you during the process. We plan a ‘round robin’ review procedure, which means that we expect authors to contribute to the review process.
