Journal of Laboratory Chemical Education

Journal of Laboratory Chemical Education is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal describing the furthering of chemical education via effective laboratory experiences. Educational laboratory experiences at the high school and undergraduate level provide a critical component of a high quality, practical education in chemistry. Laboratory chemical education is broadly defined as laboratory experiences in all traditional areas of chemistry including– but not limited to– organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, electrochemistry, polymer chemistry, forensic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, environmental chemistry, and computational chemistry. Articles considered for publication include: original educational laboratory experimentation articles, review-type articles (see below), and short letters detailing educational laboratory experiment improvements or safety issues.
