This is a call for papers for a theory and practice peer-reviewed journal on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).

Deadline: Feb. 28, 2012

This is a call for papers for a theory and practice peer-reviewed journal on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).

The goal is to make this transdisciplinary topic accessible across different fields and create awareness of STEAM at Claremont Graduate University (CGU). This is open to anyone interested in submitting a paper such as graduates, educators, art advocates, artists, policy-makers, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and STEAM advocates, business leaders, or any other individual interested in contributing their voices to this journal.

The STEAM journal’s core team is made up of graduate students, faculty members and experts in several fields. The advisory board consists of leaders in the field of STEAM and faculty members such as Dean Margaret Grogan, Dr. David Drew and Professor David Pagel. The submissions will undergo a peer review process. The journal will be published and distributed by CGU, which fosters research that transcends academic boundaries. CGU will be hosting a conference on STEAM in 2012.

Guidelines for submissions:

An academic paper of 1000-1500 words: this paper can be theoretical, a discussion of an issue or policy pertaining to STEAM or aspects linked to STEAM such as creativity, innovation, future work force or a research paper. These papers should reflect scholarly and research writing. Submissions using the American Psychological Association (APA) format are encouraged (APA format: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/)

A reflection of 250-500 words: this can be a reflection from the field (any field that is relevant to STEAM) and can be a personal reaction that offers insights into STEAM and related topics.

A lesson/program/unit plan of 500-1000 words: This piece should be an overview of a successful plan that was carried out through a lesson, program, unit or action that led to positive outcomes of STEAM. The location, age and number of students/participants should be listed. The steps carried out should be explained with a list of resources needed. Photographs or sample work is strongly encouraged to visually support the plan’s outcome. This is open to educators, activists, advocates, community outreach and any relevant work in organizations.

Art work: A photograph of an art piece that responds to the field of STEAM, a JPEG file no larger than 2 MB. The artwork should be accompanied by a title and a paragraph to explain not exceeding 100 words along with a bio of the artist not exceeding 50 words.

All FINAL versions of your submissions should be made to the editor-in-chief at steam@cgu.edu by midnight February 28th 2012.

All Word documents should be emailed as an attachment. Any photographs accompanying the articles should be emailed as a JPEG file no larger than 2 MB.

Questions may be directed to Sara Kapadia through steam@cgu.edu

Thank you.

  1. Dear Madam, Sir, I’d like to present our model of the brain histoarchitecture and function using CEREBRART – an integrated blend of scientific (histoarchitecture) and artistic (architecture and other visual arts) approaches. CEREBRART follows the long neurological tradition of CEREBRI ANATOME – the co-operative work of Thomas Willis (1621-1675), an English physician, who is often regarded as the ‘Father of Neurology’, and his relative Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723), the famous English architect.Is it interesting?
