The Journal “Educación Química” Impact of the journal “Educación Química” on Ibero- america: An international multilanguage journal and its importance in updating chemistry teaching.
XIX Biennial Conference on Chemical Education F Symposium “Chemistry Across Borders” F Andoni Garritz F UNAM, Mexico
When Educación Química was born? Between 1966 and 1974 there exist a Journal: Revista Iberoamericana de Educación Química In the nineties Educación Química was born in Mexico city: F March Development of the project F July Issue of presentation F January Volume 1, number 1
Objective of Educación Química F To fulfill in Iberoamerica the huge gap of communication that exists between teachers, students and chemistry professionals concerned about education.
Needs to cover (1989) 1) To update teachers, professionals and students 2) To explore didactics of hard-to-teach topics 3) To increase communication on chemistry 4) To promote the use of history to teach chemistry 5) To exchange exams and criteria for the assessment of chemistry learning
Needs to cover (1989) 6) To promote experimental science and technology teaching 7) To exchange experiences on educational research, curriculum design and assessment 8) To increase the contact and communication between the diverse educational levels 9) To debate the great problems of education 10) To promote the participation of chemistry students on the elaboration of the Journal
Policies F Plurality F Four languages (Spanish, English, French and Portuguese) F ‘Zero subvention’, that is, to survive with the reader’s subscription fees F To minimize the translation of papers published elsewhere and maximize original papers F At least two referees to judge each paper: –Mexican Editorial Council (1988) –International Editorial Council (1994)
International Editorial Council F José M. Abraham (Argentina) F Marta Bulwik (Argentina) F Gabriela de Lorenzo (Argentina) F José Claudio del Pino (Brasil) F Reg Friesen † (Canada) F Mónica Zolezzi (Canada) F Teresa Reguero (Colombia) F Patricia Acuña (Chile) F Guido Canessa † (Chile) F Marcela Arellano (Chile) F Manuel Martínez (Chile) F Lourdes Zumalacárregui (Cuba) F Cecilia Díaz (Panamá) F Lueny Morell (Puerto Rico) F Gabriel A.
