The Journal of Biological Education is an international journal that publishes the latest research into the teaching, learning and assessment of biology. It is owned by the Royal Society of Biology and published by Routledge.
The journal aims to bridge the gap between research and practice, providing information, ideas and opinion, in addition to critical examinations of advances in biology research and teaching. Through the coverage of policy and curriculum developments, the latest results of research into the teaching, learning and assessment of biology are brought to the fore.
Special emphasis is placed on research relevant to educational practice, guided by educational realities in systems, schools, colleges and universities. Papers that are theoretically informed and methodologically rigorous are welcomed.
We offer a special print only subscription rate for Royal Society of Biology members for an annual fee of £40. Complete the subscription form.
