NEACT Journal

Journal Tabs - Anon

The NEACT Journal is published twice a year, usually in July and February. Regular columns on subjects such as NEACT history, analytical chemistry, involvement in the classroom, New England Chemists, forensic science, safety and health, green chemistry, and the literature of chemistry provide current updates and much food for teachers' thought. Feature articles on anything from new teaching/learning methods, to industrial chemistry, to careers in chemistry offer still more information. In addition, special features such as chemical puzzles, periodic table resources, or teaching tips provide even more help and inspiration for chemistry teachers everywhere. The Journal is distributed free to all members. 

The focus of The NEACT Journal is current advances in chemistry, chemistry education, and chemistry with a New England regional flavor.  Articles should be directed to a relatively wide range of reader interests and backgrounds.  Articles and artwork or cartoons from students that meet these criteria are also welcome.

Use this form to ask questions of the editor, or to submit an article for the NEACT Journal.
The NEACT Journal is looking for new articles for the upcoming volume.  The topics can range from successful lessons used in the classroom to research or topics of interest in the chemical field.  Many states even give credits for professional development for authors (please check your local DOE for details).  Watch the Event Calendar for information on submission deadlines.
