Research in Physics Education

The Research in Physics Education (RiPE) is firmly established as an authoritative voice in the world of physics education. RiPE publishes scholarly papers that focus on the teaching and learning of physics in school settings ranging from primary education to university level. It bridges the gap between research and practice, providing valuable information, ideas, and opinions. As a truly international journal, RiPE welcomes contributions from any country, provided that the authors explain their local contexts and demonstrate the significance of their work for a global readership. RiPE is primarily concerned with physics education, but it also welcomes manuscripts on the integration of physics education with other disciplines, particularly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and the arts. Submissions that focus solely on physics (as distinct from physics education) or on general educational matters will not be considered for publication.
