International Journal on Hands-on Science

The International Journal on Hands-on Science intends to be a high quality reference journal in the area of Science Education.

Educating for Science and through Science

We expect IJHSCI to become an invaluable pedagogic resource to teachers and educators of all school levels from kindergarten to the university.


The Journal is open to contributions in all fields of Science and Education but also from all pedagogical approaches and perspectives.

We advocate, however, an active investigative learning with an extended use of hands-on experimental work in the classroom. In formal, non-formal and informal contexts.

The main language of the journal is English. 

However submissions will be welcomed in other languages: French, Portuguese, Spanish, Greek, Italian, Russian, Polish, Hindi, Romanian, Czech, Turkish, others to be added. A translation of the abstracts to English is appreciated or will be provided by the editors for all papers.

Only quality full-papers, and letters to the editors (these in English only) will be published.

All submission will be expert peer-reviewed.

The reviewing process runs in two stages:

  • the manuscript is first read in order to locate and remove everything that may identify the authors (names and affiliation, self citations, references,…) – when a self-reference is removed the cited text will be provided to the expert referees –;
  • finally the manuscript, removed of all authors’ identification, will be reviewed by two referees experts in the field.

The International Journal on Hands-on Science is an open access journal.

No submission fees apply.

Paper reprints and the printed version of the journal (quarterly) will be available at a cost.
