Journal of Chemical Education

Journal of Chemical Education Scope
The Journal of Chemical Education (JCM) is the official journal of the Division of Chemical Education of the American Chemical Society, co-published with the American Chemical Society Publications Division. Launched in 1924, the Journal of Chemical Education is the world’s premier chemical education journal.

The Journal publishes peer-reviewed articles and related information as a resource to those in the field of chemical education and to those institutions that serve them. JCE typically addresses chemical content, activities, laboratory experiments, instructional methods, and pedagogies.

The Journal serves as a means of communication among people across the world who are interested in the teaching and learning of chemistry.

This includes instructors of chemistry from middle school through graduate school, professional staff who support these teaching activities, as well as some scientists in commerce, industry, and government.


Journal of Chemical Education (JCM) Categories
The Journal of Chemical Education publishes:

  • Editorials, Commentaries, and Letters providing a venue for exchanging ideas valuable to the chemical education community.
  • Articles and Communications on many topics relevant to teaching and learning chemistry at all levels, including pedagogical methods and related chemical education research.
  • Activities that explore chemistry concepts with hands-on and often inquiry-based methods, facilitating active learning in classrooms, labs, and informal settings.
  • Demonstrations of chemical phenomena with reliable instructions that educators can emulate to engage students’ interest.
  • Laboratory Experiments that have been successfully used with students to investigate chemical phenomena as well as to develop skills with laboratory techniques, equipment, or instrumentation; notes for instructors and descriptions of hazards allow educators to readily adapt the labs to their teaching objectives and local conditions.
  • Technology Reports describing the use of specific technologies relevant to teaching and learning chemistry with the corresponding software, media, or program files made available through either link to Web sites or as the supporting information of the report.


Chemical Education Xchange
The Journal of Chemical Education supports the digital learning materials and assets of the Chemical Education Xchange (ChemEd X,, published by the ACS Division of Chemical Education. At ChemEd X you will find an award-winning collection of digital videos, references to items of interest from around the Web, and several titles intended to help students learn various aspects of the chemical sciences. ChemEd X offers you the opportunity to share ideas, content, and comment on the world of chemical education in a manner similar to other social Web sites.
