Author Guidelines

STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Editorial Procedure
Articles that are found promising are peer-reviewed. The author will normally receive a response, within six weeks, with a decision and detailed instructions for further process. Articles accepted for publication will be returned to the author for proofreading and final approval with a 48-hour deadline, where minor changes such as corrections to typographical and formatting errors, may be made.

Contributions submitted by email must be submitted as Microsoft Word files (either .doc, .docx, or .rtf). The full name of the authors, together with professional position, institutional affiliation and email-address must be given in a cover letter accompanying the submission (either as the body text of an email or as a separate PDF or Microsoft Word document. The cover letter should clearly and concisely present the main point of the contribution and explain its suitability to this journal. The cover letter must also include suggestions for at least three suitable impartial and external referees.

Article length shall normally be a maximum of 6000 words. The author is responsible for procuring permission to use illustrations and other previously published materials. Figures and pictures must be of adequate resolution and format – preferably EPS or TIF, with a minimum of 200 dpi. Pictures of lower quality may be used in the initial submission to reduce file sizes, provided that higher quality versions can be produced if the article is accepted for publication.

Language, abstract, keywords
The journal accepts manuscripts written in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, or English. The first page of the manuscript must contain the full title, an abstract of up to 300 words, and a maximum of five key words or terms.

Author-year style of referencing
Nordic Journal of STEM Education is a cross disciplinary forum for exchanging and sharing observations, reflections and results across several disciplines within STEM education. For this reason we allow most established systems for reference handling, within the various STEM fields. If in doubt we recommend the Harvard style of referencing. For examples, see [Harvard examples].
