Why YOU should publish

The main purpose of NSTA's well-rounded publishing program is to allow our members to share ideas with thousands of other people who teach science. The content reflects the needs of its audience of classroom teachers, science supervisors and administrators, teacher educators, and parents. Publishing in The Science Teacher is your opportunity to make a significant contribution to secondary level science programs.

What to submit and writing tips
