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

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.

The due date for submitting your paper this year will be on June 27, 2014. (You must have submitted an abstract by the May 16/May 30 deadline to be eligible to submit a paper!) The due date for reviews will be on August 15. All authors listed on a paper should expect to be asked and be willing to participate in reviewing up to 3 papers.

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.
