Chemistry Education Research and Practice (CERP) is a quarterly peer-reviewed open-access academic journal published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) for teachers, researchers, and other practitioners in chemistry education. The editor is Keith S Taber of the University of Cambridge.

The RSC also publishes Education in Chemistry, a news magazine on the same topic.

Publications policy[edit]

The journal publishes theoretical perspectives, critical reviews of literature, and empirical studies including systematic evaluations of innovative practice. CERP is a peer-reviewed research journal with established quality criteria.[1] It was originally published by the University of Ioannina, but switched to the Royal Society of Chemistry at the end of 2005 when it merged with University Chemistry Education.

Sponsorship by the RSC[edit]

The journal is able to be open-access, yet not have page or process charges levied against authors, due to sponsorship from the Education Division of the RSC. The RSC is a charity, as well as a learned society, and support for an open-access educational journal is seen as furthering its educational mission.

Advanced articles[edit]

Although articles are compiled into quarterly issues, including an annual theme issue, all accepted articles are published as advanced articles, often very soon after acceptance.

Theme issues[edit]

The journal includes an annual issue on a specific theme. Past theme issues are listed on the journal website.[2] The 2014 theme issue has been announced as having the theme Physical Chemistry Education.[3]
