Research in Physics Education

The Research in Phyiscs Education (RiPE) is firmly established as an authoritative voice in the world of phyiscs education. RiPE publishes scholarly papers that focus on the teaching and learning of physics in school settings ranging from primary education to university education. It bridges the gap between research and practice, providing information, ideas and opinion. 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 concerned with physics education but also welcomes manuscripts on the integration of physics education with other disciplines, in particular, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) or, and the arts. Submissions that are concerned with physics (as distinct with physics education) or with general educational matters will not be considered for publication.
