The PER Conference Proceedings

The Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings (PERC Proceedings) is the written record of the scholarly work presented at the annual Physics Education Research Conference.

The proceedings are sponsored by the Physics Education Research Topical Group (PERTG) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). The proceedings cover the full range of experimental and theoretical research on the teaching and/or learning of physics. The editors welcome submission of significant or final results as well as preliminary research results and discussions of works in progress. Contributed manuscripts undergo peer-review and the criteria for acceptance include high scholarly standards.

2014 PERC Proceedings

The deadline for submissions to the 2014 PERC Proceedings was July 11. Peer-review requests have been sent out, and author peer-reviews are due on August 15.

New this year!

There will no longer be an invited section, only Plenary and Contributed sections. A single author can be listed on multiple papers but only ONCE as a FIRST author. Each FIRST author can only submit a SINGLE paper.

FYI: A new process is being discussed for the 2015 PERC Proceedings that would involve the submission of papers in the spring so that reviews can be done differently – no final decision has been made about this as yet.
